If you are a conservative, Upstream: The Ascendance of American Conservatism is a must read!! Alfred Regnery has presented a complete and well organized history of the ascendance of conservatism in America that is informative and entertaining to read.
Regnery’s book follows the intellectual and political climb of conservatism from all angles. He discusses the issues, people, and events that have lead to America moving from a center-left nation to a center-right nation.
As the benefits and legacy of Ronald Reagan’s conservative movement begin to fade into the pages of history it is time for a new generation of conservatives to take the torch he held so high and write the next chapter of conservatism. Regnery has given us, the next generation of conservatives, a primer on how to write that chapter.
