Here, conservative insider Brad Miner takes on the challenge of defining this creed through its most influential proponents, ideas, institutions, and historical moments. In 200 brief, provocative, and accessible entries, Miner offers a panoramic survey of conservatism's origins and current trends, and shows us where the movement's future lies. Essays by respected conservative thinkers - Carnes Lord, James V. Schall, Jacob Neusner, Peter J. Stanlis, and Charles Kesler - trace developments in conservative thought from ancient times to the present. In this authoritative and broad-ranging work, Miner tackles all the major issues - economic, social, political, and spiritual. And he provides answers to our most pressing questions about conservatism: where it came from, where it is going, and why it is more popular now than ever before.
