Nash’s Conservative Intellectual Movement since 1945 mostly deals with conservatism after 1945, but I find it curious that he never deals with the issue of federalism and Alexander Hamilton like he does (albeit briefly) with Randolph or Calhoun (whom were chosen as the arbiters of a conservative tradition in America).
Excellent history of the conservative movement since 1945. Read Russell Kirk first, then George Nash. This book is best for describing the foundation of conservative thought in America, including its earliest origins but also the variations and disagreements among now-canonical texts and revered figures.
This book is about conservative intellectuals-those engaged in study, reflection, and speculation; purveyors . The reality was that all sorts of people have comprised the conservative intellectual movement in the United States in the years since 1945.
This book is about conservative intellectuals-those engaged in study, reflection, and speculation; purveyors of ideas; scholars and journalists. It is not a chronicle of political campaigns or an examination of the careers of such right-wing politicians of recent times as Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater, or Ronald Reagan, men primarily involved in the hurly-burly of everyday politics. This is the reality I have attempted to portray. So I offer here no compact definition of conservatism.

In a nutshell, this is the major lesson to be learned from The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America: Since 1945 by George Nash. First published 20 years ago, this tome breathes life into those giants of conservatism and the battles they waged not only against the dark forces of leftism, but at times against one another. That the internecine struggles of conservatism occupy a large part of this book should come as no surprise, given that conservatism was less a coherent movement than a coalition of three movements: libertarianism, traditionalism, and anti-communism.
The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America since 1945. I'd heard Nash's book referred to many times but avoided reading it because I thought I knew the modern history of conservative thought fairly well. Just as attending law school taught me I didn't know nearly as much about the Constitution as I thought I did, reading Nash taught me I didn't know nearly as much about 20th century conservatism as I'd believed. If you're a conservative, it's thrilling to watch the movement grow from a tiny group with little status into a powerful force capable of electing a president. Wilmington, De. Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 1996; reprint of Basic Books’ 1976 publication. Nash’s primary argument is embedded in his general definition of Ameri-can conservative thought, which he presents as a unique blend of three main impulses, labeled libertarianism, anti-communism, and traditionalist conser-vatism.
