Sam Tanenhaus | The Death of Conservatism

Tue, September 15, 2009 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Meelya Gordon Memorial Lecture Series

Editor of the New York Times Book Review, Sam Tanenhaus is the author of the National Book Award finalist Whittaker Chambers, a biography of the man whose accusations sparked the post-war crusade against suspected American communists. His new book, The Death of Conservatism, argues that modern conservatism is a counter-revolutionary movement with two sides: “realists” who believe in tradition and “revanchists” who often find themselves at war with the United States.

Mr. Tanenhaus will be interviewed on-stage by Carlin Romano, critic-at-large for The Chronicle of Higher Education.
