Liberalism, devoured by its own “woke” offspring, is at the end of its long reign. But just when the West needs a vigorous conservative revival, the political and intellectual movement that was once so sure of itself seems strangely irrelevant.
The award-winning political theorist Yoram Hazony shows that by identifying conservatism with “classical” liberalism, conservatives embraced the very principles that led to their defeat. The survival of Western democracy requires a revival of the centuries-old legal, religious, and cultural traditions that made Britain and America models of national freedom for the entire world.
Going where no political thinker has gone in decades, Hazony provides a fresh theoretical foundation for conservatism. Rejecting the liberalism of Hayek, Strauss, and the “fusionists” of the 1960s, and drawing on decades of personal experience, he shows that conservatism is more than a set of ideas. It is a way of life—compelling, humane, and beautiful.
