What They're Saying...

"The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, since 1945 remains since its publication in 1976 the most comprehensive treatment."

-- Choice

"Thorough and scholarly, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, since 1945 is a masterpiece of orchestration, skillfully handling a huge literature, drawing on historical events and the conservative thinkers' personalities…"

-- The Social Critic

"Nash's seminal book will remind today's hotheads that the modern conservative movement was made possible by a coalition of traditionalists and libertarians with enough common goals to get along splendidly. Is the corrupt liberal state not enough to keep this unity intact?"

-- The American Spectator

"As always, [Nash's] treatment is evenly balanced and scrupulously fair. Conservatives of all persuasions can be grateful to have George Nash as their historian."

-- First Things

"Today, it is the single best source of information on the intellectuals who built modern American conservatism."
