Founded in 1955, National Review has been the leading conservative national magazine, defining and defending conservatism for over fifty years. An Ode to NR presents a unique perspective on the National Review, offering biographies of two of NR's founding editors as well as a comprehensive history of the National Review.
Burnham and Meyers, two giants of American conservatism, helped shape the movement through their work at National Review. Their biographies are fascinating and exciting reading, not only chronicling the history of conservatism in the United States, but giving an eye-opening account of cold-war America not often told. Jeffery Hart's book rounds out this collection providing a vivid and illuminating perspective on American politics and National Review's influential role. Part chronicle, part memoir, it is totally engaging.
