abstract
"The Rise of Contemporary Conservatism in the United States offers students an accessible introduction to the history of modern American conservatism. Author Kenneth J. Heineman provides a concise but substantial discussion of modern conservatism from its origins in opposition to Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal up until the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump. The text examines electoral coalitions and politics as connected to economic and foreign policy as well as ideology. Conservative ideas and values are addressed directly, both on their own terms and in the context of contemporary political applications. A robust collection of primary documents offers students and instructors the opportunity to examine directly the views of both conservatives and their critics. Supported by range of study tools including a glossary of key figures and terms, a detailed chronology and ample suggestions for further reading, The Rise of Contemporary Conservatism in the United States is the ideal introduction for students interested in the forging and fracturing of modern conservative coalitions and ideologies"--
