What is Conservatism? free pdf Originally published in 1964, What Is Conservatism? is one of the classic works of the modern conservative movement-and it is as relevant today as it was a half century ago. Just what is conservatism? Today, many people grope for answers, especially as conservatives seem to be retreating into factions-Tea Partiers, traditionalists, libertarians, "conservatarians," social conservatives, reform conservatives, constitutional conservatives, crunchy conservatives, neoconservatives, paleoconservatives, and on and on. But this illuminating book shows what unites conservatives even as it explores conservatism's rich internal debate. Edited by Frank S. Meyer, who popularized the idea of "fusionism" that became the basis for modern American conservatism, What Is Conservatism? features brilliant essays by twelve leading conservative thinkers and spokesmen, including:* F. A. Hayek, Nobel Prize-winning economist and author of The Road to Serfdom* William F. Buckley Jr., founder of National Review and the man perhaps most responsible for the rise of the modern conservative movement* Russell Kirk, whose seminal book The Conservative Mind gave the conservative movement its name* M. Stanton Evans, author of the conservative movement's central manifesto, the "Sharon Statement" (1960)* Wilhelm Ropke, one of the twentieth century's great economists In a foreword to this new edition, bestselling author Jonah Goldberg explains the profound influence of What Is Conservatism? on his own thought and the book's relevance today.

About Jonah Goldberg

Frank S. Meyer (1909-1972) was one of the most influential conservative philosophers and popularizers. He was perhaps best known as an advocate of "fusionism"-a political philosophy that unites elements of libertarianism and traditionalism and that is often seen as the basis of modern American conservatism. Meyer was a senior editor at National Review and the author of In Defense of Freedom. Jonah Goldberg is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, Liberal Fascism and The Tyranny of Cliches. He is a nationally syndicated columnist, a Fox News contributor, a contributing editor to National Review, the founding editor of National Review Online, and a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
