Roger Scruton's How to be a Conservative presents the case for modern conservatism not in the terms of an elegy but rather as a practical example of how to live as a conservative despite the pressures to live otherwise. As he writes, the book 'is not about what we have lost, but about what we have retained, and how to hold on to it'.
In this witty and frank account, Scruton draws on his years of experience as a counter-cultural presence in public life. He examines the truths in Nationalism, Socialism, Capitalism, Liberalism, Multiculturalism, Environmentalism, Internationalism and finally Conservatism. The book concludes on a personal note, with 'a valediction forbidding mourning but admitting loss'.

Review:

Roger Scruton is that rarest of things: a first-rate philosopher who actually has a philosophy . one of the few intellectually authoritative voices in modern British conservatism (Jesse Norman Spectator)

Roger Scruton is one of our great men of speculation (David Willetts Standpoint)

A persuasive and poignant little book (Ferdinand Mount The Oldie)

Elegantly written and thought-provoking ... I loved this book, especially the way it seems to be aimed as much at the heart as the mind. On both it has a cleansing effect , the equivalent of eating a tart lemon sorbet (Country Life)

Book Description:

Renowned philosopher Roger Scruton draws on his own experience as a counter-culture presence in public life to explain conservatism in a sceptical age.
