Reviews

"Conservatism, as Roger Scruton reminds us, was founded during the 18th-century Enlightenment...Society is best seen as a social contract, these Enlightenment thinkers said. Free individuals get together and contract with one another to create order. Conservatives said we agree with the general effort but think you've got human nature wrong." --David Brooks, New York Times

"[Conservatism] buoyed my spirits, and helped me regain my bearings. Reading it, for me, was like feeling an unexpectedly cool, dry breeze on a stiflingly humid day." --Andrew Sullivan, New York Magazine
