Learn about my hero

by Darrell on 4/11/2008

I always loved William F. Buckley. I wanted to read this book to learn more about his life and what he did for the modern conservative movement. I wish that I could have met him before he past away. He was a great American and a patriot to his country. Read More

Product Overview

An insider’ s look at William F. Buckley, the National Review, and the American conservative movement

Two National Review veterans deliver a well-rounded and insightful portrait of William F. Buckley Jr. and the magazine he founded, National Review. They show how Buckley and his journal gave shape and coherence to American conservatism over the last 50 years as the movement grew from minority status to the majority coalition that elected Ronald Reagan. Rich in anecdotes that put readers in the middle of conservative concerns and controversies, the book provides a picture of Buckley that illuminates his beliefs, his personal passions, the ideas he espouses, and the strength and talents that have earned him universal recognition as a writer, debater, polemicist, and founding father of one of the most significant social, political, and philosophical movements of the past half century.

Linda Bridges (New York, NY) has worked for National Review for all her adult life. She was managing editor for ten years and is currently an editor at large. She coauthored (with William F. Rickenbacker) The Art of Persuasion: A National Review Rhetoric for Writers (0-8264-0584-3).
John R. Coyne Jr. (Chicago, IL) is a former associate editor, staff feature writer, and Washington correspondent for National Review. He is also a former White House speechwriter, chief speechwriter for Amoco Corp., and the author of four books.
