    A thorough understanding of Conservatism's lineage, principles, and impact on history is essential to making sense of the 21st-century political dialogue-a dialogue that consumes the television you watch, the newspapers you read, and the radio you listen to.No matter where you place yourself on the ideological spectrum, these 36 lectures will intrigue you, engage you, and maybe even provoke you to think about this political philosophy in an entirely new way.

    Quaker says: "Another gem by Prof. Allitt & The Great Courses"
    "you don't need to be a conservative to enjoy."

    Where does The Conservative Tradition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found this very interesting, going in I knew very little about conservatism or it's founding ideas as a political philosophy. The course goes into detail from it's history in the UK to the States and around the world. very comprehensive.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    the amount of information covered is very impressive.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Patrick N. Allitt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Very entertaining Professor.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    the links between the US and UK


    Any additional comments?

    if you are interested in politics, even if your viewpoint is not necessarily conservative - check it out.

    The prolific, perennially best selling author recounts his early life and writing struggles, gives advice on the crucial aspects of the writing art, and talks about his much-publicized, near-fatal accident.

    Bill says: "Excellent!"
    "very intresting, even if you're not a King fan."

    Would you listen to On Writing again? Why?

    Yes, the second half of the book is a clinic on the craft of writing, very informative.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stephen King before, how does this one compare?

    I am not normally a Steven King fan, and for the first half of this book I was worried this was just going to be him recounting his childhood but wait for it - the second half is worth the wait.


    What about Stephen King’s performance did you like?

    He is an incredibly prolific writer and hearing his views on writing is worth a listen.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    King sits as his desk for hours! WHY IN GODS NAME WOULD YOU WATCH THIS MOVIE!
