Neo Conservatism: Why We Need It is a defense of the most controversial political philosophy of our era. Douglas Murray takes a fresh look at the movement that replaced Great-Society liberalism, helped Ronald Reagan bring down the Wall, and provided the intellectual rationale for the Bush administration's War on Terror. While others are blaming it for foreign policy failures and, more extremely, attacking it as a Jewish cabal, Murray argues that the West needs Neo-conservatism more than ever. In addition to explaining what Neo conservatism is and where it came from, he argues that this American-born response to the failed policies of the 1960s is the best approach to foreign affairs not only for the United States but also for Britain and the West as well.

Review: Neo Conservatism: Why We Need It

User Review  - Goodreads

Neo Conservatism, we really don't need it. What Neo-Conservatism according to Murray is utilitarian in disguise: we can have individual liberty AS LONG AS it does not harm the "majority". While I can be as sympathetic to the cause, the premise is so evil that I shudder at his logic. Read full review
