Synopsis:

A bold and astute narrative history of conservatism's climb and one of the best-reviewed books of 2001.
Rick Perlstein's Before the Storm tells the story of the rise of the conservative movement in the liberal 1960s -- a story that, until this book, had never been told. The figure at the heart of the story is, of course, Barry Goldwater, the handsome renegade Republican from Arizona who loathed the federal government, despised liberals on sight, and mocked "peaceful coexistence" with the USSR. But Perlstein's narrative shines a light on a whole world of conservatives and their antagonists, including William F. Buckley, Nelson Rockefeller, and Bill Moyers. Vividly and thrillingly written, Before the Storm is already recognized as an essential book about the 1960s.


Review:

"Perlstein is a gifted writer and a talented storyteller. His sweeping narrative amounts to nothing less than a social history of modern conservatism....All scholars trying to understand the rise of conservatism or to chart the decline of liberalism will need to grapple with this provocative book."

Steven M. Gillon, Chicago Tribune Books, 03/11/2001

Review:

"One side of today's passions arose in the postwar conservative backlash to the then-prevailing New Deal liberal consensus. Rick Perlstein's BEFORE THE STORM is an engaging narrative of an important early salvo in the backlash, Barry Goldwater's 1964 nomination."

Stanley I. Kutler, Washington Post Book World, 03/18/2001
