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: An Obituary for an Idea 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,
traces the intellectual relationship between the political
philosopher Leo Strauss and contemporary neoconservative political
actors, and provides a trenchant critique of neoconservatism from
the perspective of America's founding principles. The theme of this
timely book--neoconservatism as a species of anti-Americanism--will
shake up the intellectual salons of both the Left and Right. 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
