The wonderful Priscilla Buckley has written a history of the nation’s most influential magazine (to judge by the election results), National Review. I’m proud to claim NR as one of my alma maters (I was publisher from 1988-1991). The book is full of funny anecdotes and great stories about doing battle in the years before many people knew how to spell the word “conservative,” much less understood what it stood for (and need I add, many Republicans in Congress still don’t seem to understand what it stands for). I’ve bought my copy, and here’s where you can buy yours. By the way, the book was produced by Spence Publishing, the Dallas publishing firm that increasingly has become a powerhouse in conservative intellectual circles.
