Ted WidmerMr. Micklethwait and Mr. Wooldridge helpfully distinguish between the different kinds of conservatism that are joined through the Republican Party, but are not really the same as each other or the party. While they write from a historical perspective, they are reporters as well, and the story is enlivened by glimpses into places most Americans do not see: gated communities, conservative retirement homes, gun lobby office parks and educational institutions like Patrick Henry College, which teaches "Christ and liberty" to students from home-schooling backgrounds. The writing is consistently crisp and intelligent, the conclusions balanced.
