    Only bought this for Bacevich's foreign policy conservatism - his was excellent as always (5 stars), the rest of the essays much less interesting or trended towards odd arguments. I can only take so many 'if only we had listened to [insert generally unknown / minor 19th century thinker here] things would be better' pieces.

    This is less a book than a collection of essays. The first, by Andrew Bacevich, is well written and interesting. The rest of the collection is of varied quality. Some are reasonably useful. Some are just plain silly. I abandoned this book a little beyond half way through. I cannot recommend it.

    Excellent series of essays concerning lesser known conservatives of the early 20th Century. Most appeared as articles in The Conservative Digest, a Libertarian/Conservative journal. It provides a much needed boost to anti-statist Conservatism and a veritable reading list of important thinkers.
