Decent but frustratingly inadeuate Nash is honest but he fails at a deeper task of the intellectual historian to ask uestions the intellectuals can't or don't ask of themselves Intellectually speaking this is a chronicle not a historyNash generally takes at face value the highly contested concepts deployed by the New Right individualism limited government tradition etc rather than inuire about their content He does note that postwar American conservatism actually comprised at least three distinct strands of thought libertarianism traditionalism and anticommunism and that the exponents of these traditions ended up in bitter conflict but he fails to ask any of his own uestions about these ideologies' compatibility That is Nash dutifully reports numerous instances when one conservative scathingly attacked another in print repudiated another's thought or made a reluctant compromise but he never analyzes the reasons for these maneuvers beyond reporting what the figures themselves wrote at the time The result is a tendentious and incoherent account The Conservative Intellectual Movement is still useful today however as a chronicle of names and events
