Constitutional Conservatism: Liberty, Self-Government, and Political Moderation by Hoover fellow Peter Berkowitz
Hoover Institution Press released Constitutional Conservatism: Liberty, Self-Government, and Political Moderation, by Peter Berkowitz. Berkowitz contends that constitutional conservatism encompasses a distinguished tradition of defending liberty that stretches from the great eighteenth century British statesman Edmund Burke through the authoritative exposition of the Constitution in The Federalist to the high points of post-World War II American conservatism.
Peter Berkowitz, the Tad and Dianne Taube Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, in discussing Constitutional Conservatism, encourages the social and libertarian right to come together around the common principles of “liberty, self-government, and political moderation.”
