9780471758174: Strictly Right: William F. Buckley Jr. and the American Conservative Movement

An affectionate portrait of the man who started it all

"With this graceful homage to Bill Buckley, two people who have known the pleasure of his company as friends and colleagues place him where he incontestably belongs––at the center of the conservative political movement that moved the center of American politics to the right."
––George F. Will, Newsweek

"Strictly Right paints an intimate and penetrating portrait of the elegant and multifaceted figure who has helped to add a new dimension to the American political canvas."
––Henry A. Kissinger

"Bill and I and others have been good friends for almost sixty years and I thought I knew of his life as well as anyone, but Linda and John have brought the events together in a magnificent story that surpasses all that we have absorbed. If you like and admire Bill, you must read this. If you don′t, read it anyway––it will be good for you."
––Evan G. Galbraith, former Ambassador to France and Chairman of National Review

"Linda Bridges and John Coyne evoke the true old times, when every morning brought a noble chance, and every chance brought out William F. Buckley Jr., ready to write, speak, question, provoke, tease, or praise, in print, in person, or on the tube, as required. All honor to him, and to the authors who capture him in these pages."
––Richard Brookhiser, author of What Would the Founders Do?: Our Questions, Their Answers

"Strictly Right paints an intimate and penetrating portrait of the elegant and multi–faceted figure who has helped to add a new dimension to the American political canvas."
Henry A. Kissinger

Can any other magazine of ideas match the impact of National Review? Almost alone, it articulated and launched the modern conservative movement, helping change the face of American politics and win the Cold War in the process. A remarkable magazine, but no more so than its creator, Bill Buckley, whose brilliance as a writer, editor, speaker, and mentor shaped many of today′s cultural and political superstars. Strictly Right is fascinating, entertaining, and ultimately inspiring – the story of how one man and the magazine he created helped to transform American and – ultimately – the world." Aram Backshian, Jr. Editor–in–Chief, American Speaker
