Since its beginning in 1973, The Heritage Foundation has sought to conserve and renew the principles of the American founding through leading research and accessible education. As a think tank, Heritage is devoted to finding effective solutions to the most pressing political challenges of our time. Under the leadership of Edwin J. Feulner, Jr., Ph.D., it has become a permanent Washington institution and the leading exponent of conservative ideas, not only in America, but also around the world.
In Leading the Way, Lee Edwards, Ph.D. – widely regarded as “the historian of the American conservative movement” – tells the story of how Ed Feulner transformed policy making in Washington. For thirty-six years under Feulner’s lead, Heritage has shaped politics and articulated conservative solutions for critical issues of the day. The story of Ed Feulner’s legacy and the history of The Heritage Foundation are a quintessential account of the conservative cause in America. Join us as Kathryn Jean Lopez interviews author Lee Edwards and they examine this uniquely American story in the ongoing and vital battle of ideas.
