Modern Books

The following is a list of books whose authors, by standing on the shoulders of giants, have developed, maintained, and honed the Modern Conservative intellectual movement. These publications represent the rational, real, and abiding tension between liberty and tradition, between “free markets” and a moral society, and the ongoing vigilance required of liberty-minded citizens to keep our country safe from foes abroad, while being ever watchful of tendency toward tyranny at home.

(This list will be consistently changed and updated, and we welcome suggestions.)
