Reviews
Praise for Conservatism:

"With this astonishing book, Yoram Hazony takes uncontestable leadership of postliberal conservatism, becoming not only its most important public intellectual, but also its passionate prophet. Conservatism: A Rediscovery is the book we have long been waiting for: a compelling critique of where the right went wrong and how it can create a vital new public philosophy by reinvigorating old truths. An unusually compelling mix of history, political science, cultural analysis, religious wisdom, and personal testimony, Hazony's instant classic is not just the voice of a new conservatism; it is also the voice of an old civilization whose clarion call proclaims hope and sounds the way out of the contemporary West's dark wood."-- Rod Dreher, senior editor at The American Conservative and author of Live Not by Lies

"Conservatism: A Rediscovery is a fascinating, erudite, and mind opening work--historically adept, philosophically vital, and clearly written. It's a must-buy and a must-read for anyone who thinks deeply about liberty, responsibility, and community."-- Ben Shapiro, host of The Ben Shapiro Show and editor emeritus of The Daily Wire

"Steeped in history, framed with well-defined concepts, and presented in crystal clear prose, Hazony's powerful vision of conservatism for the twenty-first century is capable of steering the ship of state out of our present perils."-- R. R. Reno, editor of First Things and author of Return of the Strong Gods

"Libertarians are used to arguing against those who praise government in the name of 'progress' and for the sake of their own power. But the more intellectually forceful challenge to libertarianism comes not from progressives but from conservatives. Yoram Hazony provides that challenge in this lucid exposition of a tradition of conservative nationalism that begins in the Old Testament and passes through George Washington and Alexander Hamilton to our own moment."-- Peter Thiel, author of Zero to One

"The most convincing and thorough evisceration and dismissal of Enlightenment political thought in the last 70 years."

--Michael McKenna, Washington Times
"A magisterial book by an important conservative intellectual. To conceptualize and defend as sweeping a political philosophy as Hazony does is a real accomplishment."

-- Matthew McManus, Liberal Currents
"A brilliant, moving, and compelling account of what it means to be a conservative in today's world."

-- Ben Dunson, American Reformer
"An astonishing essay in political anthropology... It is not often that a reviewer reaches for the word 'masterpiece, ' but this is one book where the word is warranted."

-Bradford Littlejohn, Law and Liberty
"For the first time in a generation or more, American readers are presented with a full-fledged and non-Lockean conservative political theory... I believe my undergraduates would call this book 'based.'"

-- Daniel Burns, Public Discourse
"An impressive and heroic work."

-- Paul Krause, Voegelin View
