First line

THE STUPID PARTY: this is John Stuart Mill's description of conservatives.

From the rear cover

"A profound critique of contemporary mass society, and a vivid and poetic image not a program, an image of how that society might better itself. The Conservative Mind is, in important respects, the twentieth century's own version of the Reflections on the Revolution in France... Kirk was an artist, a visionary, almost a prophet."
David Frum, author of Dead Right
"Kirk is assured a place of prominence in the intellectual histories for helping to define the ethical basis of conservatism. He has tried to pull conservatism away from the utilitarian premises of libertarianism, toward which conservatism often veers, toward a philosophy rooted in ethics and culture."
The Wall Street Journal
"I have been one of your fans since the time many years ago when I read The Conservative Mind."
Richard Nixon
