From the Publisher"His book is a useful introduction to its history." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
"It is an important and elegant history of how Jewish intellectuals have shaped conservative politics." Washington Examiner, Gregory L. Schneider, Emporia State University
"...a first-rate history of the neoconservative movement." Philadelphia Inquirer, Jack Fischel, Millersville University
"[Friedman's] written an engaging history of the entire post-WWII conservative movement, showing how neoconservatism and traditional conservativism...eventually intersected. And, more importantly, how the neocons played a critical role in reshaping the movement before that joining." New York Post, Eric Fettman
"Friedman's book forms a fine testament to his memory, as well as fitting legacy to the nation it reveals him to have so dearly loved."
“Readable and comprehensive. What distinguishes this volume from its predecessors is the greater support of attention it pays to the specifically Jewish background and concerns of some of the leading neoconservatives of both the older and the younger generations. The epilogue briefly delineates the role played by Jewish neoconservatives in the launching of the Iraq War in 2003.”
"Freedman is at his best when theorizing about why this clique of Jews might have sought so much power, developed tunnel vision in wielding of it, and courted the support of Bible-thumping Christians while tossing former allies like gays and women under the bus. Few may have noticed while the coup was occuring, but at least The Neoconservative Revolution, after the fact, relates the fascinating back story of how the prevailing American mindset has been reshaped to the point where the handling of Katrina and the unprovoked war of aggression in Iraq are no longer national disgraces but simply signs indicating that the neocon policies have been fully implemented." - Kam Williams
