Re: Best Conservative Books


Jonah, I’m bummed not to see Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France — which has as much to do with why I am a conservative as any other book — on the list. It is at its most potent read alongside The Federalist, as Burke’s devastating dismemberment of the nascent radical-revolutionary zeal that would plague Europe for 200 years only serves to magnify the prudence and genius of our Founders.
