Format: Hardcover
Rossiter's little book is a must-have for any student of politcal thought and theory. Be forewarned, this is not a book for the weak-minded. Rossiter clearly defines Amercican Conservatism and explains why it supercedes today's liberal, weak-minded, damaging ideology. If you consider yourself a conservative, this is your new Bible. If you are another persuasion, plan on converting.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Who, What, Where? VINE VOICE on September 28, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a good first effort to identify the conservative movement for those living in postwar America. Many years of the new deal and liberals in power created in postwar American a need for another political viewpoint providing the intellectual justification for opposing the then recent past. Many would look toward those calling conservatives. Rossiter's book is an effort to explain for these individuals where conservatives came from, and from whom they derived their viewpoints. What Rossiter found was that "true" conservatism, like that found in the UK, was dead in the US. What serves as conservatism is really a desire to maintain classical liberalism. This is the interesting point of this book, and a departure from Kirk's view. Rossiter argues that conservatism is simply relegated to maintaining the liberal accomplishments of the founders. I would argue there is more to it than this, but it is still a good book.
