Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Alfred Regnery’s book is marvelously thought out and marvelously executed…[H]e leaves the reader panting with gratitude for his accomplishment, and smiling for his felicity.” William F. Buckley, Jr.
“This is a valuable addition to our understanding of modern politics.”  Paul Johnson, historian  
“The rise of conservatism in the United States over the past half-century has been one of the most important political developments of the age—not only for America, but for the world…In all, this is a valuable addition to our understanding of modern politics.” Paul Johnson, historian
“Regnery’s history of the American conservative movement is very much an insider’s point of view. Both he and his father have been active players in the movement, helping to promote its ideals and meeting many of its major figures. Narrator Jeff Riggenbach is always clear, and his rhythms align well with Regnery’s prose.” AudioFile
