Synopsis

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.
