*One of the National Review's 100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century
First published in 1953, this magnificent work will be remembered in ages to come as one of our century's most important legacies. The then-young Kirk wrote this during a time when liberalism was heralded as the only political and intellectual tradition in America. There is no doubt that this book is responsible to a large degree for the rise of conservatism as a viable and credible creed.
Kirk defines ''the conservative mind'' by examining such brilliant men as Edmund Burke, James Fenimore Cooper, Alexis de Tocqueville, John Quincy Adams, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Benjamin Disraeli, Cardinal Newman, George Santayana, and finally, T.S. Eliot. Vigorously written, the book represents conservatism as an ideology born of sound intellectual traditions.
"A profound critique of contemporary mass society, and a vivid and poetic image &mdash not a program, an image &mdash of how that society might better itself. The Conservative Mind is, in important respects, the twentieth century's own version of the Reflections on the Revolution in France &hellip Kirk was an artist, a visionary, almost a prophet."
&mdash David Frum, author of Dead Right
"Kirk is assured a place of prominence in the intellectual histories for helping to define the ethical basis of conservatism. He has tried to pull conservatism away from the utilitarian premises of libertarianism, toward which conservatism often veers, toward a philosophy rooted in ethics and culture."
&mdash The Wall Street Journal
"I have been one of your fans since the time many years ago when I read The Conservative Mind."
&mdash Richard Nixon
