For the Albert J. Nock types!

Reclaiming the American Right: The Lost Legacy of the Conservative Movement, Justin Raimondo’s excellent story of the origins of the American Old Right opposition to Great Dictator Roosevelt’s New Deal and dastardly plot to get the U.S. into WWII, its marginalization at the hands of the vile William F. Buckley Jr. and the return of Old Right libertarianism in our time is being reissued by ISI Books. It tells the stories of all the leaders of the Old Right and of the ex-communists who infiltrated the movement and turned it into nothing but a mob of support for belligerent nationalism and imperialism.

Says Ron Paul:

“When I was deciding whether or not to run for President as a Republican, I re-read Justin Raimondo’s Reclaiming the American Right and it gave me hope — that the anti-interventionist, pro-liberty Old Right, which had once dominated the party, could and would rise again. Here is living history: the story of an intellectual and political tradition that my campaign invoked and reawakened. This prescient book, written in 1993, could not be more relevant today.”

At Amazon.

Update: William F. Buckley is dead.
