About the Author

Kevin Mattson is the Connor Study Professor of Contemporary History at Ohio University. He is the author of Rebels All!, When America Was Great, Upton Sinclair and the Other American Century, Intellectuals in Action, and What the Heck Are You Up To, Mr. President? He has written for the American Prospect, Dissent, Nation, New York Times Book Review, and Washington Post Book World, among many other publications.


"Bright, insightful, and expansive, Rebels All! is an intelligent, provocative, and highly readable interpretation of the modern conservative movement and mind. Mattson offers the kind of broad, historically informed analysis that will reshape how readers think about the American conservative impulse that has grown so potent in recent years.
"--Nelson Lichtenstein "editor of American Capitalism: Social Thought and Political Economy in the Twen "
"There are many books on conservatism, but none of them gives us exactly what Rebels All! does: a somewhat irreverent account of postwar conservatism delivered with Mattson's trademark sharp interpretive point of view."--Neil Jumonville "editor of The New York Intellectuals Reader "
"This is a brilliantly irreverent study of a shrewdly irreverent movement. Kevin Mattson, one of our finest historians of liberalism, captures the ties that bind William F. Buckley to Ann Coulter, and he does so with a light touch that even his subjects should admire."--Michael Kazin "author of A Godly Hero: The Life of William Jennings Bryan "
"Mattson's account of the contemporary American 'conservative mind' is provocative and persuasive. Concise and lively, Mattson's book will appeal to readers seeking a general introduction to American conservatism, and to scholars interested in new ways of engaging the conservative political vision. Highly recommended."--CHOICE
