Sam Tanenhaus discusses his new book, The Death of Conservatism. For 75 years, Tanenhaus argues, the right has been split into two factions: consensus-driven "realists," who believe in the virtue of government and its power to adjust to changing conditions, and movement "revanchists," who distrust government and society and often find themselves at war with America itself.Eventually, Tanenhaus writes, the revanchists prevailed, and their success resulted in today?s decadent "movement conservatism," a defunct ideology that is "profoundly and defiantly unconservative -- in its arguments and ideas, its tactics and strategies, above all in its vision."The discussion is moderated by Bruce Handy, a deputy editor at Vanity Fair.moreless
