“The most convincing and thorough evisceration and dismissal of Enlightenment political thought in the last 70 years.”
Michael McKennaWashington Times

“A magisterial book by an important conservative intellectual. To conceptualize and defend as sweeping a political philosophy as Hazony does is a real accomplishment.”
Matthew McManusLiberal Currents 

“A brilliant, moving, and compelling account of what it means to be a conservative in today’s world.
Ben DunsonAmerican Reformer 

 “An astonishing essay in political anthropology… It is not often that a reviewer reaches for the word ‘masterpiece,’ but this is one book where the word is warranted.
Bradford LittlejohnLaw and Liberty 

For the first time in a generation or more, American readers are presented with a full-fledged and non-Lockean conservative political theory… I believe my undergraduates would call this book based.’”
Daniel BurnsPublic Discourse 

“An impressive and heroic work.”
Paul KrauseVoegelin View 

“In a world where so many feel homeless, this book offers a path to finding our way home again.”
Henry GeorgeMerion West 

“With this astonishing book, Yoram Hazony takes uncontestable leadership of postliberal conservatism, becoming not only its most important public intellectual, but also its passionate prophet. Conservatism: A Rediscovery is the book we have long been waiting for.”
Rod Dreher, senior editor at The American Conservative and author of Live Not by Lies

A fascinating, erudite, and mindopening work—historically adept, philosophically vital, and clearly written. It’s a must-buy and a must-read for anyone who thinks deeply about liberty, responsibility, and community.”
— Ben Shapiro, host of The Ben Shapiro Show and editor emeritus of The Daily Wire

 “Steeped in history, framed with well-defined concepts, and presented in crystal clear prose, Hazony’s powerful vision of conservatism for the twenty-first century is capable of steering the ship of state out of our present perils.”
— R. R. Reno, editor of First Things and author of Return of the Strong Gods

“The more intellectually forceful challenge to libertarianism comes not from progressives but from conservatives. Yoram Hazony provides that challenge in this lucid exposition of a tradition of conservative nationalism that begins in the Old Testament and passes through George Washington and Alexander Hamilton to our own moment.”
— Peter Thiel, author of Zero to One

Liberalism, devoured by its “woke” offspring, is at the end of its long reign. But just when the West needs a conservative revival, a 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.
