Publisher Comments:

In 1960, Barry Goldwater set forth his brief manifesto in The Conscience of a Conservative. Written at the height of the Cold War and in the wake of America's greatest experiment with big government, the New Deal, Goldwater's message was not only remarkable, but radical. He argued for the value and importance of conservative principles--freedom, foremost among them--in contemporary political life. Using the principles he espoused in this concise but powerful book, Goldwater fundamentally altered the political landscape of his day--and ours.

Review:

"For a man who proudly described himself as "simple," Barry Goldwater remains a historical puzzle." Angus Burgin, The New York Sun

mralphe, December 26, 2010 (view all comments by mralphe)
Goldwater was of the last of his kind as conservatives go. I found his writings in this book down to earth and his ideas are worlds apart from those of the current Republican party. The Reagan Conservatism that is romanticized by Republicans today is merely a flawed attempt at what should have been romanticized as Goldwater Conservatism. This book gets down to fundamentals like fiscal spending, strong national defense, personal liberty, as well as personal responsibility. Republicans can use this book as a frame of reference for where the party went wrong. Democrats will find an abundance of well thought out points from a man who's goal in American politics had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the American Dream.
