Atlanta in the history of American conservatism

If you’re a Weekly Standard subscriber, you can read my review of this book on "Atlanta and the making of modern conservatism" here.

If you want to learn about the history of modern conservatism, don’t read the book. If you haven’t yet had your fill of books on post-World War II Atlanta politics, there are a few things you might learn. If you get your jollies reading about how conservatism is really just racism, and aren’t too particular about solid evidence and argumentation, by all means, buy the book.

Update: The folks at The Weekly Standard were kind enough to make the review available to the general public here.

What was it that John Shelton Reed said? Something like: "Sherman can’t be all bad, at least he burned down Atlanta."
