Conservatism in the 21st Century cover

A young entrepreneurial journalist interviewed 11 of the leading conservative thinkers of our era to discover the essence, origins, state and future of conservatism in the midst of the Donald Trump surge. As part of his own intellectual and philosophical journey trying to make sense of the current political discourse and debate, Labrecque travelled to Washington D.C., New York City, Paris, London and Montreal over the span of two years to sit down with leading conservative intellectuals such as Charles Krauthammer, Shelby Steele, Heather Mac Donald, Harvey C. Mansfield and Roger Scruton to produce what is a unique and perhaps most complete overview of the various facets of Conservatism.

In the midst of the Donald Trump surge and the current internal strife amongst Republicans and conservatives as to whether they should support the Trump candidacy or not, Conservatism in the 21st Century provides a concrete, accessible conversational way to understand the principles and notions of conservatism, its many variants and what its future holds. Beyond the chaos and confusion of political rhetoric and activism we rediscover the roots and evolution of conservatism from the personal stories of leading conservatives, how they came about adopting a conservative vision of the world and how they conceive of various issues such as law & order, education, immigration, American exceptionalism, personal intellectual development, the new left and the place of conservatism in universities.

The near future is very bumpy. Conservatism will have to deal with the populist challenge represented by Donald Trump or whoever will succeed him. It could turn out to be a one-man phenomenon but I don’t think so. It does reveal some underlying discontent with the direction of traditional conservatism.
~ Charles Krauthammer
