Product description

Product Description

A vigorous defence of the most controversial political philosophy of our age. In this timely book Douglas Murray explains what neoconservatism is, in theory and practice. He defends it against its critics and explains why – despite the noisy claims of its opponents – neoconservatism is good.

Murray is the first person to make a sustained case for why neoconservatism is relevant to Britain. And neoconservatism, it is argued, is the future not just of the British Conservative party, but of any political party committed to the ideals of freedom at home and abroad.

This book calls for the introduction of neoconservative ideas into British politics, explaining why this is necessary and how it could be achieved.

The early chapters explain neoconservatism’s roots and forebears. A chapter on the Iraq war demonstrates the moral and political vacuum now gripping both ‘left’ and ‘right’ in Britain. Finally, Murray details what British neoconservatism should look like and why the need for it is so urgent.

"Conservatism is lost in crisis - Douglas Murray brilliantly defines the way out." WILLIAM SHAWCROSS

"At last! The Right's answer to Michael Moore" ANDREW ROBERTS

"Required reading for all conservatives". ROGER SCRUTON


Born in 1979, Douglas Murray is a graduate of Magdalen College, Oxford. His first book, Bosie: A Biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, was published in 2000 by Hodder and Stoughton (UK) and Miramax Books (USA). Acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, the book became a bestseller, and was reissued in paperback in 2001 and 2002. While still at Oxford, Murray began reviewing for the Spectator. He has since written for many other publications, including the Observer and the New York Sun.
Since 2001, he has written widely in support of the US and UK-led wars of intervention. A columnist for, and formerly on the editorial staff of, the online magazine openDemocracy, he joined the Social Affairs Unit as a regular contributor in 2004. He frequently lectures and debates in public, on television and radio, in support of the war in Iraq, and of neoconservative foreign policy in general.

Throughout 2003 Murray attended the Saville Inquiry into the Bloody Sunday shootings, to observe the evidence of the military witnesses. His interest in Northern Ireland, and the Bloody Sunday Inquiry in particular, is the basis for a new book due to be published after Lord Saville issues his final report.

Murray has been interviewed and profiled in the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, Talk, the Guardian, the Scotsman, Vogue and many other publications.

He is also the author of a play, Nightfall, about the Swedish anti-Nazi hero Raoul Wallenberg.
