The Right: The Hundred-Year War for American Conservatism
Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series
How did the party of Ronald Reagan evolve into today’s Republican Party? What is in store for the future of conservatism? Author Matthew Continetti examines the often tumultuous evolution of conservatism from the Progressive Era through the present day and reveals how conservative leaders throughout history navigated aspirations for mainstream acceptance and the pull of extremism.
Matthew Continetti, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, is the author of The Right: The Hundred-Year War for American Conservatism. Yuval Levin (moderator) is the director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute.
