Abstract

A review of Roger Scruton's Conservatism: An Invitation to the Great Tradition, arguing that while Scruton's historical discussion is illuminating, situating conservatism in dialogue with liberalism, his agenda for taking conservatism forward, involving a focus on political correctness and religious extremism, is very limited, not only ignoring a number of other very serious political issues, but also failing to speak to the concerns of non-conservatives.
