Perlstein provides a historical perspective on how the Republican Party of Eisenhower and Rockefeller went from being a group run by liberals and moderates in the 1950s, to a group of obsessive anti-communist warriors, driven by paranoia, narcissism, and macho triumphalism. Perlstein shows the way that American conservatives resented the rise of internationalists and economic planning after the failure of the "do nothing" congress to repeal the New Deal during the Truman administration, and how the desire to return to the economic order of the 1920s (or even earlier) fueled the rise of people like Ronald Reagan, William F. Buckley Jr., L. Brent Bozell, Phyllis Schlafly, Clarence Manion, and Barry Goldwater. Ultimately, Perlstein makes a strong case for the view that the defining political development of the 1960s was the rise of the "new right," and that we have lived ever since with an inability to understand and respond to their arguments and tactics.
