What is 'Conservatism'?

Paul Gottfried responds to a review of his book "Conservatism in America", on FrontPage Magazine.

"We have had American thinkers on the Right in the past, like Russell Kirk, Richard Weaver and Robert Nisbet, who had some conception of what classical conservatism was. But their influence on the current conservative movement has been nil, and even the occasional homage to them found in conservative publications, as I show in my work, has become weaker and weaker over time."
