By offering voters a conservative choice, not a liberal echo, Barry Goldwater laid the foundation for a modern political revolution that changed American politics to this very day. However, too many of today’s conservative leaders have lost sight of his profound legacy while a rising generation of conservatives have almost no idea of his importance.
In this re-launch of the most comprehensive Goldwater biography ever written, author and historian Lee Edwards presents a thorough, clear, and proper understanding of the Senator’s contribution to the modern conservative movement and the relevance of his ideas even now. With a new foreword by Phyllis Schlafly that reinforces the significance of Goldwater today, it becomes even more evident that no other losing presidential candidate – indeed perhaps no other politician – has had a greater effect on the shape of current American politics.
Lee Edwards, Ph.D. is the Distinguished Fellow in Conservative Thought at The Heritage Foundation, the Chairman of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, an Adjunct Professor of Politics at the Catholic University of America, and a veteran of Barry Goldwater’s 1964 campaign for the presidency.
