Reviews
"Allitt shows how ''conservatism'' has an American history best understood in terms of its fluid meanings, plural definitions, and oppositional currents."?David Hoeveler, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee -- David Hoeveler
"This is a spirited and scouring intellectual history, likely to become a minor classic. What is called ''conservative'' is shown to be a uniquely American core of convictions repeatedly summoned to hold the fort against waves of Europeanizing assailants."?Charles Hill, Hoover Institution, Stanford University -- Charles Hill
"Allitt''s writing is lively, and he has a gift for summarizing the complicated ideas he deals with in this welcome history."-Leo P. Ribuffo, George Washington University -- Leo P. Ribuffo
"Patrick Allitt has written a perceptive, rigorously balanced, and richly panoramic account of conservative ideas and thinkers in American politics and culture since 1787. This is a welcome indeed, necessary book."-George H. Nash, author of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945 -- George H. Nash
