What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Gregory Schneider’s Conservatism in American since 1930 is the best collection of conservative writings available today. Including every major conservative statement worth reading, this is a book that will be read and reread.”
-Donald T. Critchlow,Saint Louis University

“All the greats—Buckley, Hayek, Kirk, Friedman, Reagan—are represented in the fine anthology edited by Gregory L. Schneider, and the gloves occasionally come off”
-National Review


“An ambitious book, chock-full of the learned and provocative writing that characterized the opposition party all throughout the strife-torn 20th century. It is brutally honest about the movement's current predicament.”
-The American Conservative


“Liberals and conservatives alike should have no trouble endorsing this anthology from 70 years of the conservative movement in the United States.”
-Library Journal


“In recent years, historians have discovered just how important an influence conservatism has been in the shaping of modern American culture and politics. Greg Schneider has been in the forefront of that effort, and he now provides us with a fascinating collection of readings that trace the evolution of conservative thought. His thoughtful selection of materials and his instructive commentary bring alive the history of a significant intellectual and political tradition. A first-rate achievement.”
-Robert M. Collins,University of Missouri, Columbia
