Neoconservatism: Why We Need It

Wednesday October 2005

Neoconservatism is perhaps the most controversial and misunderstood political philosophy of our time.

Douglas Murray, a young British journalist, will show why neoconservatism is here to stay, and how it will provide a blueprint for the politics of the future. He will explain why its position beyond traditional liberalism and conservatism makes it uniquely attractive to a generation in Great Britain and the United States seeking a humanitarian foreign policy and a check to the erosions of moral relativism at home.

Mr. Murray’s first book, Bosie: A Biography of Lord Alfred Douglas, was a bestseller. He has been interviewed and profiled in the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, Vogue, and many other publications. He is also the author of the play, Nightfall, about the Swedish anti-Nazi hero Raoul Wallenburg.
