'In the introduction to this engaging study of American conservatism, Micklethwait and Wooldridge of the Economist disclaim any allegiance to America's two great political tribes. It is this Tocquevillian quality of informed impartiality that makes their book so effective at conveying how profoundly the right has reshaped the American political landscape over the past half century. The authors trace the history of the conservative movement from the McCarthy era, when conservatism was a fringe idea, to the second Bush administration and the victory of the right. They dissect the new conservative establishment, which combines the intellectual force of think tanks, business interest groups and sympathetic media outlets with the brawn of footsoldiers from the populist social conservative wing of the GOP, and argue that continuing Republican hegemony is likely. ... This epochal political transformation is rarely analyzed with the degree of dispassionate clarity that Micklethwait and Wooldridge bring to their penetrating analysis.'--Publishers Weekly. Keywords: history, government, politics, political, party, United States.
