Featuring Douglas Murray
Author of Neo-Conservatism: Why We Need It
Monday, August 14, 2006
In the aftermath of September 11, neo-conservatism was an ideology clearly on the rise, providing the intellectual rationale for the Bush administration's War on Terror. Five years later, with deepening crises in Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran, foreign policy critics are claiming that America has lost its way.
Drawing on current events and his just-published book, British commentator Douglas Murray will argue why America and Europe should not abandon a neo-conservative philosophy where liberty is viewed as the ultimate antidote to extremism. Murray will examine the historical rise of neo-conservatism, place it in today's challenging world, and show how the conservative revolution is far from over - on both sides of the Atlantic.
Douglas Murray is also the author of Bosie: A Biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, a bestselling biography published while Murray was still an undergraduate at Oxford. Murray appears regularly on BBC and lectures throughout Europe and the United States on the War on Terror, Islam and Europe, interventionism and the ongoing culture wars.
