From the Publisher
Annotation A former speechwriter and Oval Office insider, Michael J. Gerson clearly had the ear of President George W. Bush, who listened to Gerson's pleas for compassionate conservatism and who shared Gerson's devoutly Christian-centered worldview. Gerson returns the favors, speaking well of his former boss and defending him on Iraq. In HEROIC CONSERVATISM, Gerson argues that Bush deserves world stature on par with Woodrow Wilson for his effort to spread democracy worldwide. He repudiates the radical right faction of his party, arguing strongly that, in order to win, the GOP must engage with and lead the way on social issues such as poverty and social justice. An energetic advocate for social change, Gerson here speaks forcefully and with a sense of urgency, and time will tell whether his was a voice in the wilderness or a clarion call for his party to return to traditions and values that he says are its source.
