Format: Paperback
Great book on the origins of the conservative movement. This book makes it clear to see how far the modern conservative movement has strayed from its origins. The book is a great read from a close associate of Goldwater who saw it all up close.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Middendorf accounts the building of the foundations of modern day far right ideological warfare with this insider's account of the 1964 Goldwater presidential run where the youth of old money dyasties began to reclaim their plutocratic birthright.
