Henry Regnery was one of the unsung heroes of the last half-century of American cultural life. Regnery is principally known as the ground-breaking publisher of our age's most important conservative authors. But as this latest collection of his writings demonstrates, Regnery himself ranks among the most insightful conservative minds.
What They're Saying...
"What [Regnery] did have, always, was hope—hope that an individual's actions could make a difference for the good.... Against the pressures of conglomeration, a few old houses and even some upstarts, including the outlet presenting this volume, join in marching to an antique drum."
— Books & Culture
"[T]hanks to the Intercollegiate Studies Institute and editor Jeffrey O. Nelson, we have Perfect Sowing to remind us of our enormous debt to a publisher and acute intelligence whose books were responsible largely for the bankruptcy of modern liberalism and the shape of the conservative movement in America."
"[T]his collection could serve as a handbook for conservative speechwriters."
— Publishers Weekly
"Everything in the collection is well written, and nearly everything is flavorful, as appreciable for its literacy and craft as for its information."
"These pieces…reveal the quality of Regnery’s prose style (lucid, vigorous, but never strident) as well as the depth and breadth of his mind."
