"The most considerable conservative book since Kirk's [ The Conservative Mind].... The richness and depth of Will's study is astonishing.... Everyone interested in American politics and liberal democracy will find it enthralling."-- Booklist (starred review)
"A richly documented history of and argument for a wider embrace of conservative political values."-- Kirkus Reviews
"A monumental achievement. The Conservative Sensibility is not a 'Washington book' about partisan politics--it's much bigger than that. It's a career capstone that will stir your soul with its passionate reminder of what conservatism really means. Buy it, read it, share it." -- Senator Ben Sasse, New York Times-bestselling author of Them and The Vanishing American Adult
"It's time to return to the wisdom of the founding fathers, argues this sweeping political manifesto.... Will centers the book on a rich, wide-ranging discussion of political philosophy written in graceful, aphoristic prose... Will offers a formidable, thought-provoking riposte to conventional dogmas."--Publishers Weekly
"Most Americans would agree, I think, that America is exceptional, but nailing down exactly why can be a matter of contention. With his typical pellucid prose, George Will provides an exceptionally elegant explanation in ... The Conservative Sensibility."-- Kyle Smith, National Review
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, an "astonishing" and "enthralling" (Booklist) new examination of how the Founders' belief in natural rights created a great American political tradition--"easily one of the best books on American Conservatism ever written" (Jonah Goldberg).
