Summary:

On the heels of his national bestseller Worse Than Watergate, John Dean takes a critical look at the current conservative movement

In Conservatives Without Conscience, John Dean places the conservative movement's inner circle of leaders in the Republican Party under scrutiny. Dean finds their policies and mind- set to be fundamentally authoritarian, and as such, a danger to democracy. By examining the legacies of such old-line conservatives as J. Edgar Hoover, Spiro Agnew, and Phyllis Schlafly and of such current figures as Dick Cheney, Newt Gingrich, and leaders of the Religious Right, Dean presents an alarming record of abuses of power. His trenchant analysis of how conservatism has lost its bearings serves as a chilling warning and a stirring inspiration to safeguard constitutional principles.

    The 1st CD was unintelligible because it skipped most of the way thru. The 2nd CD drove me to distraction, because the writer goes on ad nauseam about the types of leadership style. I can agree with the sentiments, but enough already. Also, the reader's voice sounded very snooty and was extremely distracting.

    If you feel like the Republican party and conservatism in general has been stolen from you, this is your book. Dean's feelings about Bush II are hardly in doubt, but his analysis and the questions he raises are very insightful.

    Important information of which we should all be aware. The bullies in our leadership will bully us if they can and if we don't vote them out. Heavy handed religious doctrine is not what this country is about.

    Excellent book. This book is not a Bush bash, but a look at leadership styles and a candid look at all of our country's leadership. I highly recommend this book.

    I was hoping for more and this sure didn't deliver --- far, far left - in my opinion. Should be in the editorial category, short on facts and long on bashing.
