Description

"Dr. Richard Bishirjian's Conservative Rebellion examines the American conservative movement in light of phases of American history in which the life of the American nation took shape from forces and conditions of the American soul. The author argues that the first phase of our common political life was a rebellion that we call the "Spirit of '76." That rebellion attempted to preserve the practices, traditions, and customary rights of a tradition of self-government that developed during the 140 years of the Colonial era. That first "Conservative Rebellion," erupting in Lexington and Concord, was a conservative rebellion whose spirit shapes American politics and society even today through the American conservative "movement." The author contrasts their rebellion to the revolutionary political religion of President Woodrow Wilson"--show more
