What Is Conservatism?

Yoram Hazony

American Affairs | 2017

“In this essay, we seek to clarify the historical and philosophical differences between the two major Anglo-American political traditions, conservative and liberal. We will begin by looking at some important events in the emergence of Anglo-American conservatism and its conflict with liberalism. After that, we will use these historical events as a basis for drawing some political distinctions that will be highly relevant for our own political context.”

Sir John Fortescu Knight, Lord Cheife Justice & Lord Chancellor of England, William Faithorne, 1663
