Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent sampling of the CRB’s first decade. (The Weekly Standard)

[This book], like the magazine, shines on its literary quality alone. (Claremont Review of Books)

Review

For lovers of conservatism, books, or both, this journal is a must. (National Review)

A life in journalism, and in Washington, has taught me three things. First, not only do ideas have consequences, only ideas have large and lasting consequences. Second, books are still the primary carriers of ideas. Third, the Claremont Review of Books offers invaluable reflections on the most thoughtful books about politics. (George Will, winner of the Pulitzer Prize)

Full of splendid essays and reviews—well written, based on deep scholarly knowledge, raising issues of lasting importance. I read it cover to cover. (Michael Barone, senior political analyst, Washington Examiner, resident fellow, American Enterprise Institute, co-author, The Almanac of American Politics)

One of the best and most intelligent things to happen to the conservative movement. (William J. Bennett, former U.S. Secretary of Education, author of The Book of Virtues)

Invaluable, entertaining, and educational all at the same time. (Jonah Goldberg, syndicated columnist and editor-at-large, National Review Online)

In my judgment, the best review of books in America. It's also simply one of the best periodicals in America. I read each issue eagerly and attentively—with both pleasure and profit. (William Kristol, editor, The Weekly Standard)

By far the best review of books around, both in its choice of books and topics and in its treating them in depth, in style, and—most unusual of all—with real thought, instead of politically correct rhetoric. (Thomas Sowell, Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University)

An indispensable publication. Every issue is full of original perspectives on the big questions to the small corners of life that illuminate them. (Mark Steyn, author, After America)

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By JaffaneseAmerican on March 14, 2014
Format: Hardcover
The editors of the Claremont Review of Books have chosen the best of ten years' worth of the CRB. The essays and reviews reflect on the principles of the American republic, their application and future, how corruption of the culture and irresoluteness in foreign policy weaken the anchoring virtues. Between Michael Uhlmann's opening essay on Claremont conservatism to Harry Jaffa's closing reflections on Macbeth are many hours of pleasant and provocative reading.

As for the complaint about the lack of a table of contents in the kindle edition, there is an elaborate Index.

FYI - there is no table of contents in this Kindle ebook as of September 2012. Considering the hefty price tag, this is extremely annoying omission. I don't have a full review to offer, but I found it so annoying that I felt I had to make prospective buyers aware of this.
