Conservative Moments : Reading Conservative Texts Paperback / softback
Edited by Mark Garnett
Part of the Textual Moments in the History of Political Thought series
As a complex and multifaceted world-view, conservatism is often pigeonholed and partially understood. And while the nature of conservative ideology is warmly contested among scholars, no-one can deny its prominence in contemporary debates and its effects on the politics of everyday life. These 16 essays written by expert scholars and specialists offer a broad survey of conservative thought that extends beyond typical historical and geographic boundaries to include past thinkers like Plato and Edmund Burke, non-European conservative traditions such as Japan and Russia, and political `practitioners' including Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and Charles de Gaulle.
Each essay grapples with short primary source extracts while offering instructive criticism and commentary.
Conservative Moments offers students a useful, accessible, and comprehensive exposition of this political ideology.
