An insider’s investigation of the state of the post-Bush Conservative movement in the United States today.
R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.—intimately familiar with the ideology and personalities of the conservative movement in the United States from the inside—analyzes who was right and what went wrong. And, in the process, he outlines the conservative agenda for the “next ascendancy.”
Tyrrell's well-turned prose has received acclaim from such people as P.J. O'Rourke, Norman Mailer, Paul Johnson, Dick Morris, William Safire, William F. Buckley Jr., and Henry Kissinger. Tom Wolfe has said, "No columnist, no author, has had a greater influence upon the course of American political history over the past decade than the ribald contrarian R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. Even the slain giants die laughing."
