About the Book

Defining Conservatism is a passionate appeal to a political movement that is re-examining its identity as Republicans set their sights on 2010 and beyond. A dedicated young conservative, Jonathan Krohn presents conservative philoso­phy’s basic tenets in this remarkably earnest and impeccably reasoned primer. This book, clear and informative, is a history lesson, a manifesto, and a road map for the future. It is Krohn’s rallying call to action not just for conservatives, but for anyone interested in the political state of our nation. In Defining Conservatism, Krohn challenges “government expansionists,” whose faith in Wash­ington and the basic pillars of government exceeds their faith in the individual. At the same time, he boldly stakes out four unshakable principles for conservatives to rally around: respect for the Constitution, respect for human life, belief in minimalist government, and insistence upon personal responsibility. Anyone interested in the basic differences between conservative and liberal thought will find Krohn’s writing at once compelling, informa­tive, intelligent, and in some respects controversial. Defin­ing Conservatism is a must-read for anyone who is interested in the basic principles upon which the United States was founded, and perhaps most importantly, for anyone who is concerned with the future of this country.
