Editorial Reviews


British and American conservatives are two political groups divided by a common ideology. Still Soul Mates? explains why, with fascinating insights into politics, philosophy, and economics. This thought-provoking collection of essays is a fine resource for anyone seeking to understand conservatism on both sides of the Atlantic. (John J. Pitney Jr., Roy P. Crocker Professor of American Politics, Claremont McKenna College)

This terrific little volume of essays on US and British conservatism is a most useful corrective for those who think in binary terms about conservative policy, values, perspectives, and roots (i.e., UK-Burke; US-neoliberal individualism, small government; Thatcher-imported US neoliberalism). A significant strength of these essays is to show how much more complex the reality is. In his excellent introduction, McNaught (Univ. of Rennes 2, France) emphasizes that, whatever the differences, "ultimately, the broad ideological direction of US and UK conservatives bears a family resemblance, especially in foreign and economic policy" but that circumstances (e.g., electoral logic) makes them "in many respects alien to each other," although Daniel DiSalvo and James Ceasar note David Cameron's efforts to make British conservatism "more American." Chapters meet a high standard but cover only foreign policy, religion, and economics....It is a welcome addition, and readers cannot help but note the delightful cover photo. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. (CHOICE)
