An obituary - so soon! Surely the reports of neoconservatism's
death are greatly exaggerated. C. Bradley Thompson has written
(with Yaron Brook) the most comprehensive and original analysis of
neoconservatism yet published and in the process has dealt it a
mortal blow. Neoconservatism reveals publicly for the first time
what the neocons call their "philosophy of governance" - their plan
for governing America. This book explicates the deepest philosophic
principles of neoconservatism, elucidates the intellectual
relationship between the political philosopher Leo Strauss and
neoconservative political actors, and provides a trenchant critique
of neoconservatism from the perspective of America's founding
principles. The theme of this timely book will shake up the
intellectual salons of both the Left and Right: Neoconservatism as
a species of anti-Americanism. What makes this book so compelling
is that Thompson actually lived for many years in the
Straussian/neoconservative intellectual world. Neoconservatism
therefore fits into the 'breaking ranks' tradition of scholarly
criticism and breaks the mold when it comes to informed, incisive,
nonpartisan critique of neoconservative thought and action.
