Synopsis

Can social conservatives and libertarians ever move beyond "agreeing to disagree"? Can those who emphasise safeguarding traditional morality and religion and those who stress the need to keep government firmly within fixed bounds form a principled alliance? In Constitutional Conservatism, Peter Berkowitz identifies the political principles social conservatives and libertarians share, or should share, and sketches the common ground on which they can and should join forces. Drawing on the writings of Edmund Burke, The Federalist, and the high points of post-World War II American conservatism, Berkowitz argues that the top political priority for social conservatives and libertarians should be to unite by rallying around the principles of liberty outlined in the Constitution and reclaim the wisdom embodied in America's founding charter of government. He shows that constitutional conservatism, well understood, provides a framework for developing a distinctive political agenda to which both social conservatives and libertarian conservatives can in good conscience subscribe.
