One of "7 Books to Watch for in April" in The New York Times

"A valuable collection. . . . Bacevich is not looking for agreement -- this is neither an evangelistic credo nor a sort of Conservatism for Dummies. Rather, it is a collection of diverse thinkers generally inclined toward the causes of order and tradition, and the best articles have a solidity that can seem a bracing tonic for the present chaos." --Tim Page, The Washington Post

"A rich menu. . . . Bacevich's selections evidence that conservative anxiety about the cultural consequences of modernity has a distinguished American pedigree."
--George F. Will, The New York Times Book Review

"Eloquent. . . . A collection of essays and speeches--mostly from the 20th century--that argue tacitly that today's conservatism needs an intellectual reboot." --Kirkus Reviews
