A collection of the most provocative and insightful writing from the influential conservative magazine the Weekly Standard.

Smart, tough, and opinionated, The Weekly Standard has been America's most influential conservative journal since its inception in 1995. In this collection, editor William Kristol gathers the most provocative and insightful pieces from the magazine's ten–year history, assembling a who's–who not just of conservative commentary, but of contemporary journalism. With pieces from the likes of David Brooks, P.J. O'Rourke, Christopher Hitchens, and Tucker Carlson, the collection ranges from penetrating coverage of foreign and domestic policy to erudite cultural commentary to acerbic and hilarious parodies. Readers will be treated to a pundit's history of the decade, as told by the magazine that has become mandatory reading inside the Beltway––a series of engaging, thought–provoking essays that will appeal not just to the Weekly Standard's large and loyal readership but to anyone who cares about American politics and culture.
