Book Description: An education on conservatism. This series of essays defines the American idea of conservatism as adapted from European society. In tracing its evolution from the country’s beginnings, conservatism is defined as sound money, light taxes, low debt, states’ rights, and decentralization. Chapters examine men like Grover Cleveland, the last conservative president; John Taylor, the best political thinker of the Jeffersonian tradition; and Sam Ervin, the last constitutionalists. Through the words and actions of men, readers will find an understanding of American conservatism from the founding generation to the present.
