"In recent years ... a new debate has broken out within conservative ranks, pitting traditional 'moral conservatives' against a new group of 'libertarian conservatives.' This is primarily an intellectual debate within a small group of writers and scholars ... Nevertheless, political philosophy-unlike poetry, according to Auden-does make things happen, and this slim volume does give one the flavor of a debate that remains largely beneath the surface of American politics."-
