The Neoconservative Persuasion
By Irving Kristol
Wednesday, February 2, 2011 - 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Hudson Institute - Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center
As conservatives try once again to re-envision America's future and how to secure it, the publication of this volume of previously uncollected essays by Irving Kristol, "the godfather of neoconservativism," could not be timelier. The fifty essays, spanning seven decades and organized thematically, display the enormous range of Kristol's interests and concerns, as well as what editor Gertrude Himmelfarb calls his "distinctive intellectual sensibility—skeptical, commonsensible, eclectic, and at the same time strong-minded and hard-headed." At once prescient and wise, the essays are models of serious thought about the ideas that always inform politics and the myriad ways in which politics, culture, economics, and religion intersect.
Four panelists—Leon Kass, (Madden-Jewett Chair, American Enterprise Institute); Charles Krauthammer (Pulitzer prize-winning syndicated columnist and political commentator); William Kristol (Editor, The Weekly Standard); and Irwin Stelzer (Economist, columnist, and Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute)—all closely familiar with the rich terrain of Irving Kristol's thought and each uniquely suited to address a particular aspect of it, discussed The Neoconservative Persuasion (Basic Books). Hudson CEO Kenneth Weinstein introduced the panel, and Hudson Senior Fellow Amy Kass served as moderator.
