Today, people associate the American Right with militarism and big spending, despite the periodic rhetoric about cutting government. If you think about it, some of the largest expansions of government in the last 50 years have taken place under regimes that identified themselves with the "Right."

It was not always this way! The modern American Right was born in opposition to the New Deal and its drive for the entrenchment of the welfare-warfare state. This was a courageous and glorious stand in a time when the state was making massive advances. They were building the socialist/fascist state at home, and the Old Right resisted at every step!

This book by Justin Raimondo is the most compelling narrative ever written on the "Old Right" of the 1930s and 1940s. He tells the whole story in the most inspiring and detailed way. He writes of the forgotten giants and prophets such as Sen. Robert A. Taft, Garet Garrett, Albert Jay Nock, Isabel Patterson, and Col. Robert McCormick, among many other figures.

First published in 1993, Reclaiming the American Right is today as timely as ever. It was first written as a polemic but it has emerged as a lasting classic that will educate and fire you up about the ideals of this generation, and how they can be recaptured today. This is a critical piece of intellectual history from the 20th century that is otherwise supressed.

The miniature bios and literature roundups are invaluable and highly accurate. Plus, this edition includes a new introduction by Georgetown political scientist George W. Carey, Patrick J. Buchanan’s introduction to the second edition, and new critical essays on the text by Scott Richert, executive editor of Chronicles, and David Gordon, senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

"When I was deciding whether or not to run for President as a Republican, I re-read Justin Raimondo's Reclaiming the American Right and it gave me hope—that the anti-interventionist, pro-liberty Old Right, which had once dominated the party, could and would rise again. Here is living history: the story of an intellectual and political tradition that my campaign invoked and reawakened. This prescient book, written in 1993, could not be more relevant today." — Ron Paul, Eleven Term U.S. Congressman (TX) and 2008 Presidential Candidate
