The Right: The Hundred-Year War for American Conservatism
A “superb” and “ambitious” (New York Times) intellectual and political history of the last century of American conservatism
In “The Right: The Hundred-Year War for American Conservatism” (Basic Books, 2022), AEI Senior Fellow Matthew Continetti explains the political atmosphere of the present moment by looking to the conservative movement’s past. In a sweeping history that takes us from the 1920s to the present, Continetti chronicles the triumphs and struggles of the intellectuals, activists, and politicians who brought the right from obscurity to the heights of American government. Tracing the intersecting lives of figures such as William F. Buckley, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, Continetti shows how conservative ideas have fared in the political struggles of the 20th and 21st centuries.Order Your Copy Now!
