After the Hangover by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.

After the Hangover is the story of the Conservative Movement, from its inception in the 1960s on through the tough times of 2008 and beyond, all told by someone who was there from the beginning. It is an eye opener for people who may think conservative and Republican are synonymous. It tells the story in such a way that the reader learns not only what the Conservative Movement is all about, but how it changed and lost some of its focus throughout the years. It also shares why there is hope for people who may have thought the dream of small government had died.

The book is great in the way it clarifies what the conservative mindset was and distinguishes that from what a lot of people have since tried to make it. It is not always the easiest read, but considering it summarizes a movement that has been around for half a century with a lot of important but not entirely well known figures, it does a good job. It teaches and informs. People who are fed up with the out of control government we have today would do well to check this book out. Those on either end of the conservative spectrum, from libertarian to traditional, will gain a better understanding for why they need each other and why it is not to late to take a stand for what they want politically.
