According to most versions of history, America’s founders were united in their moderate political philosophy. But in fact the Revolution was nearly derailed by extremists who wanted to transform the entire society. If not for a small circle of conservatives who kept radicalism in check and promoted capitalism, a strong military, and the preservation of tradition, our country would be vastly different today.

In the first book to chronicle the critical role these men played in securing our freedom, David Lefer provides an insightful and gripping account of the birth of American conservatism and its effect on the earliest days of our nation.


“Lefer has done a wonderful service by focusing attention on the conservatives among our founders.”
Walter Isaacson

“A splendid narrative history”
The Washington Times
