The most convincing and thorough evisceration and dismissal of Enlightenment political thought in the last 70 years. Michael McKenna, Washington Times A magisterial book by an important conservative intellectual. To conceptualize and defend as sweeping a political philosophy as Hazony does is a real accomplishment. Matthew McManus, Liberal Currents A brilliant, moving, and compelling account of what it means to be a conservative in todays world. Ben Dunson, American Reformer An astonishing essay in political anthropology It is not often that a reviewer reaches for the word masterpiece, but this is one book where the word is warranted. Bradford Littlejohn, Law and Liberty For the first time in a generation or more, American readers are presented with a full-fledged and non-Lockean conservative political theory I believe my undergraduates would call this book based. Daniel Burns, Public Discourse An impressive and heroic work. Paul Krause, Voegelin View Steeped in history, framed with well-defined concepts, and presented in crystal clear prose, Hazonys powerful vision of conservatism for the twenty-first century is capable of steering the ship of state out of our present perils. R. R. Reno With this astonishing book, Yoram Hazony takes uncontestable leadership of postliberal conservatism, becoming not only its most important public intellectual, but also its passionate prophet. Conservatism: A Rediscovery is the book we have long been waiting for. Rod Dreher Conservatism: A Rediscovery is a fascinating, erudite, and mind opening workhistorically adept, philosophically vital, and clearly written. Its a must-buy and a must-read for anyone who think deeply about liberty, responsibility, and community. Ben Shapiro The more intellectually forceful challenge to libertarianism comes not from progressives but from conservatives. Yoram Hazony provides that challenge in this lucid exposition of a tradition of conservative nationalism that begins in the Old Testament and passes through George Washington and Alexander Hamilton to our own moment.
