Description
This book includes a good history of conservative thought from the classic conservatism of Burke down to the present time. But it is also a call to action and, as such, is directed at the American businessman, who Rossiter says is not a real conservative, and at the American liberal who he wishes to convert. An active and thoughtful conservative himself, Rossiter attempts to show that many people are mistaken in applying the term to themselves. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
