    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.

    Thomas H. Kregel says: "Superb - It filled in so many gaps in my understan"
    "An Excellent Historical Look at Conservatism"

    Would you listen to The Conservative Tradition again? Why?

    I would listen to this audio book again, but I would skip through certain chapters. Professor Allitt gives a very in depth history of the political tradition. He covers a great deal of British conservatism, which I didn't find as relevant or interesting if you have no connection to the UK. It was still a great lesson.

    Story
    (4208)

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Ellen says: "At last - The Definitive Recording!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fellowship of the Ring to be better than the print version?

    No. I still prefer the books, but it is great when you don't have time to read them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fellowship of the Ring?

    Tom Bombadil is one of my favorite parts of the story, but I also enjoy all the rich history that Tolkien provides about his magical world.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    You could not ask for a better narration. He voices the characters just as you would imagine them.


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

    It's already been made.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth every penny.
