Publisher's Summary

In the 1950s, a handful of intellectuals, supported by several wealthy businessmen and a few editorial writers, set the stage in their writings and other efforts for what has become the most vibrant political and cultural force of our time. Veteran conservative publisher Alfred Regnery writes an insider's account of the American conservative movement over the past 50 years, highlighting its most important moments and personalities.Regnery offers a unique perspective and an array of personal anecdotes as he looks at each of the forces that made this phenomenon happen and how those forces have influenced American culture, politics, economics, foreign policy, and other sectors of American life.

Smooth sailing

This book has clarified more issues than any book I have read on the subject of conservative politics. The tone of the book is also not condescending as some of the ones I have read.
I always felt that Ronald Reagan was one of the greatest presidents of the Twentieth Century, now I am convinced that he was the greatest. Listening to more of the history about the man is fascinating and surprising with little known facts (to me) about Reagen and many others involved in the conservative movement.
Very enjoyable to listen to and deserves a second listening.
