Title: Former Oklahoma Representative Mickey Edwards Discusses Book on Conservatism

Speakers: Rubens Medina, Mickey Edwards

Event Date: Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Running Time: 49 minutes

Description: Former Representative Mickey Edwards (R-Okla.), a leading member of the American conservative movement for more than 40 years, believes that many conservatives today have abandoned their principles and have become champions of that which they once most feared–government intrusion.

In his new book, “Reclaiming Conservatism: How a Great American Political Movement Got Lost–And How It Can Find Its Way Back,” Edwards argues that the mantle of conservatism has been taken over by people whose beliefs and policies threaten the entire constitutional system of government by gutting the system of checks and balances, abandoning due process and trampling upon civil liberties. He provides a blueprint for reclaiming the essence of conservatism in America.

Presented by the Law Library of Congress.
