From the Publisher:
Reviewers agree that this book is one of the most important statements about conservatism in a generation. It is a sobering reminder that, on the heels of the 1994 elections, Republicans had best not become complacent. The release of the paperback has been strategically placed on the 100th day of the 1st session of the new Congress.Discusses the ideological breakdown of the Republican Party, its failure to diminish the deficit or the size of government in twelve years of control, and outlines a plan for renewal
A Forbes columnist discusses the ideological breakdown of the Republican Party, its failure to diminish the deficit or the size of government in twelve years of control, and outlines a plan for renewal through a return to basic issues.Part reportage, part manifesto, Dead Right leads readers on a witty and opinionated tour through the chaos of post-Reagan conservatism. It explains why the “Religious Right” is a phony menace … why President Reagan failed to eliminate even one major spending program … why the 1992 Republican convention, originally conceived as a cunning ploy, backfired … and much more. David Frum analyzes the conservative movement’s turn away from the economic issues that dominated the 1980s to a new preoccupation with race, ethnicity, and sex. He explains how and why conservatives decided to stop fighting Big Government and start using it. And he warns that a conservatism that loses its anti–Big Government faith is doomed to futility. Dead Right dissects the new conservative position on issues ranging from education to workfare, immigration to enterprise zones, and ruthlessly scrutinizes the leadership of the conservative movement. Always lively and provocative, this is the one book that conservatives and their critics must read to understand the past and future of the American Right.

Praise

(unknown)
"'Dead Right' is a look at what went wrong during the last 14 years of conservative politics as the message of economic conservatism was abandoned in favor of soical conservatism. Simply put, Mr. Frum argues that the Republican right shifted away from its anti-big-government position because it was reluctant to keep pushing for a reduction in the growth of government and, as a consequence, to risk losing elections." - Susan Lee

New York Times
"The smartest book written from the inside about the conservative movement." - Frank Rich

(unknown)
"This isn't just a good book, it is a classic." - Peggy Noonan
