''Without God and Man at Yale
, one could fairly say, the conservative movement would not exist today. Soon after winning national attention with this controversial polemic, William F. Buckley Jr. deployed his youth, charm, and intellect to unite a motley crew of cantankerous intellectuals into a viable conservative movement. Less than a generation after Lionel Trilling famously opined that 'in the United States at this time liberalism is not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition,'
Buckley had in large part caused the liberal consensus to unravel.'' --From the new foreword to the 50th Anniversary Edition
''Still correct and prophetic. It defines the conservative revolt against socialism and atheism on campus and in the culture and reconciles the alleged conflict between capitalist and religious conservatives.'' --George Gilder, National Review

''William F. Buckley's book with the brilliant title, God and Man at Yale
, will kick up a glorious controversy . . . Brilliant, sincere, well-informed, keenly reasoned, and exciting to read.'' --American Mercury
