Gregory L. Schneider has written an astute and absorbing contribution to the growing historical scholarship on American conservatism. In this well documented study, he demonstrates that modern conservatism has not been a static phenomenon but a supple, variegated, and resilient influence in American politics. (George H. Nash, author of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945)
Schneider takes a broad approach, considering conservatism a 'protean' movement that eludes easy definition, and succeeds in illustrating his assertion that this fluidity has allowed conservatism to flourish for an entire century. Students of political history will find a valuable perspective in this study. (Publishers Weekly)
Schneider . . . does a spirited job of walking through the standard post-Buckley history, but with a careful emphasis on what was new about its traditionalism, what was tossed away in its conservatism, what was statist in its supposed defenses of liberty. (Reason)
Gregory L. Schneider offers a more thorough [account] in his new survey, The Conservative Century: From Reaction to Revolution precisely because it is limited to the 20th century. . . . Schneider's copious account of the post-war conservative movement is superb. (Claremont Review of Books)
Gregory L. Schneider has already established a reputation as one of the preeminent historians of American conservatism. Steeped in a deep appreciation for the intellectual diversity of American conservatism and the long and arduous path that led conservatives from relative obscurity to political power, The Conservative Century will unquestionably assume a position next to George Nash's Conservative Intellectual Movement in America as one of the most insightful books on the subject. (Marc A. Eisner, Henry Merritt Wriston Chair in Public Policy, Wesleyan University)
Dispassionate, systematic, and accessible, Schneider makes an important contribution that will be particularly useful as an introduction for students unfamiliar with one of the central story lines of twentieth-century American politics. (Journal of American History)
Schneider's The Conservative Century is one of the most sophisticated books on conservatism to come out in recent years. The sections on paleo- and neo-conservatism are superb. (Gerald De Maio, Baruch College)

The biggest surprise was that in 1998 PNAC wrote a letter to President Clinton advocating regime change in Iraq. I'm 70 and I enjoyed this coherent review of what happened.
