Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Neoconservatism and the Age of Ideology
They apparently had no suggestions to offer to Fuller when he presented them with this bundle of words:.
Having agreed to publish the book, they should at least have employed a first-rate copy editor to get rid of the hundreds of spelling and grammatical mistakes. As it is, they give the impression of having done nothing at all, apart from accepting an inadequate manuscript and sending it straight along to the printer.
If this book was peer-reviewed, the peer reviewers were negligent. If it was not peer-reviewed, the acquisitions editor should have drawn the obvious conclusion.

He or she should have realized: here is an author who has read lots of books and articles and written summaries of them all, but who has not created a coherent or powerful argument, has not broken any new ground, and has not mastered the elements of writing in English to the necessary standard. He has written six books on religious history, education, and politics, including The Conservatives: Ideas and Personalities Throughout American History.

About the Author. I will focus on the substance of the book, which he also found lacking.
Adam L. Fuller (Author of Taking the Fight to the Enemy)
Unlike Allitt, I am not a historian, but rather a political theorist. The neoconservatives have had a wide range of influences that helped shape its evolution. I discuss important debates that arose within the general conservative movement after the neoconservatives arrived on the scene. Although not neoconservatives themselves, they could be seen as sitting inside their anti-communist campus alcove to use a City College of New York metaphor and engaging them in an ongoing, sometimes posthumous discourse about politics, economics, and culture.
While the significance of Leo Strauss has already been richly, although not always accurately explored in other books, I thought it needed to be reformulated given the many misconceptions. Moreover, Elliot Cohen, Joseph Schumpeter, and Raymond Aron have received practically no attention at all in the previous literature on neoconservatism, but I devote considerable effort to explaining their importance to it.

Overall the book effectively dispels many myths surrounding neoconservatism while acknowledging both the nuances and the common traits that define one of the most influential political movements of the last 50 years. Summing Up: Recommended. In my view, it will provide a balanced overview of the subject for scholars and the general public alike.see url
