Dr. Richard Bishirjian's Conservative Rebellion examines the American conservative movement in light of phases of American history in which the life of the American nation took shape from forces and conditions of the American soul.
 
The author argues that the first phase of our common political life was a rebellion that we call the "Spirit of '76." That rebellion attempted to preserve the practices, traditions and customary rights of a tradition of self government that developed during the 140 years of the Colonial era. That first "Conservative Rebellion," erupting at Lexington and Concord,  was a conservative rebellion whose spirit shapes American politics and society even today through the American conservative "movement." The author contrasts their rebellion to the revolutionary political religion of President Woodrow Wilson.
 
President Woodrow Wilson's redemptive desire to destroy the "balance of power politics" of early 20th century Europe engendered conditions that led to World War II and, ultimately, the Korean War, the war in Vietnam and two wars by George W. Bush in Afghanistan and Iraq that the President clearly intended to be redemptive from the authoritarian practices of the Middle East.
 
The divisions that trouble American society today were unleashed by Woodrow Wilson's political religion and continued by Democrat and Republican Presidents alike. The Conservative Rebellion has the potential, the author believes, to replace political religion with lessons learned from the statesmanship of Americans during the Colonial and Founding eras and the mid-Twentieth Century revival of classical political thought.
 
The renaissance of classical political theory by University of Notre Dame political theorists Stanley Parry, Gerhart Niemeyer and Eric Voegelin and University of Chicago political scientist Leo Strauss is central to the conservative "rebellion" of 21st Century American conservatives.  Their knowledge that recovery of political order is necessarily based on recovery of spiritual substance and order of American society, culture and soul is a cautionary lesson that there are no quick fixes to the crises, divisions and failed Presidents of modern America.

From the Author:

What I call "The Conservative Rebellion" is an aspect of America's self-interpretation of itself in that aspect of our history which we are now entering and which I shall call, with some optimism, its period of "recovery."  As such, the social development of the Conservative Rebellion is what Eric Voegelin called an "eruption" of the American spirit and mind, a paradigmatic breaking out of the American soul itself, that has been developing since the New Deal.

From the Back Cover:

The rebellion of the conservatives against global citizenship:  a most needed and thoroughly researched return to true classical philosophy - not to say Plato's - and to the true wisdom of the American Constitution as our only hope for reviving authentic America from the death grip of quasi totalitarian modern American millenarianism.--Claude Polin, Professor Emeritus, Sorbonne, Paris, France

 
Richard Bishirjian makes a compelling case that the love of individual liberty and freedom that fueled the rebellion against colonial rule is today driving a Conservative Rebellion against nearly a century of limitless government unleashed by Wilsonian "idealism."He shows that its objective for the American nation to fully renew itself.  This is an indispensable guidebook for today's conservatives. --Peter Hannaford author of "Reagan's Roots" and long closely associated with the late 40th president.


In The Conservative Rebellion, Bishirjian tells the compelling story of his intellectual formation as a conservative "rebel" studying political philosophy, as a participant in the conservative resurgence in American politics from Goldwater to Reagan, and as an analyst  of the current tensions with conservatism. He offers a rare combination of philosophic and practical reflection.  Anyone seeking deeper insight into American conservatism will profit greatly from reading this book.--Timothy Fuller, Colorado College
