Description

When it was first published, The Conscience of a Conservative reignited the American conservative movement and made Barry Goldwater a political star. It influenced countless conservatives in the United States and helped to lay the foundation for the Reagan Revolution in 1980.



Just as vital today as it was then, this book addresses many topics that could be torn from today's headlines. Goldwater discusses education, labor unions and policies, civil rights, agricultural policy and farm subsidies, social welfare programs, and income taxation. This significant book lays out the conservative position both politically and economically that would come to dominate the Conservative Movement in America.

    If, as purported, Goldwater’s thoughts encapsulates the ethos of modern conservatism, it is to be understood that through the litany of his hypocrisies and woefully flawed conclusions — those that have been both accepted and rejected reaching the same end — has led to the self implosion of the modern GOP where Goldwater’s arguments have not stood the test of time.

    Because of of which, I only encourage the reading of his antiquated and confused thoughts in understanding how conservatism cannot and will be applicable beyond such delusions of grandeur wrought by a limited mind.

    Basically a campaign book that doesn’t hold up to the test of time.

    An important little book. The cold warmonger pages (last section only) are outdated, but the rest of the book is a refreshing discourse, whether you agree or not is hardly the question. You just don't hear politicians speak like that anymore - and you won't be able to listen to them in the same way anymore either...

    Another great installment in the series about Jacky Faber, ship's boy, fine lady, privateer, and possible slave? This completely unbelievable adventure (really, how much trouble can one girl get into?) is highly entertaining. L. A. Meyer has no trouble keeping up the status quo with Jacky's misadventures and does not disappoint in the fourth book of the series.

    Of these five tales, four of them are bone-chillingly good. My favorite is "Witches Hallow," and then the title piece. The only reason the book didn't earn the full five stars was that weak last story.
