The Conservative Bookshelf: Essential Works That Impact Today's Conservative Thinkers

Front Cover
Citadel Press, 2005 - Political Science - 345 pages
1 Review
The list here embraces everything from the Bible, Cicero's Republic and Tocqueville's Democracy in America to 21st century bestsellers by Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan. It includes fiction, poetry, and political thought side by side with the works of C. S. Lewis, Edmund Wilson, and Flannery O'Connor. Much more than a book for conservative thinkers, The Conservative Bookshelf gives insight into the mainsprings of western civilization by some of the ranking thinkers of all time.
