Reclaiming Conservatism

How a Great American Political Movement Got Lost--And How It Can Find Its Way Back

Mickey Edwards

In this highly provocative volume, Mickey Edwards argues that conservatives today have abandoned their principles and have become champions of that which they once most feared. The conservative movement was based on a distinctly American kind of conservatism which drew its inspiration directly from the United States Constitution--in particular, an overriding belief in individual liberty and limited government. But today, Edwards argues, the mantle of conservatism has been seized by a group that threatens the health of the entire federal system. Edward concludes with a blueprint for reclaiming conservatism.
