American conservatism today is both triumphant and turbulent. In this collection of essays and articles, David Frum, one of the nation's leading young commentators, points the way toward a conservatism that defends the ideals of liberty and morality.

With unsparing candor and wit, Frum thoughtfully reassesses the leading icons of the Right from Adam Smith to Newt Gingrich. In examining current controversies like health care, tax cuts, and crime, What's Right makes a powerful case for Republicans to reject populism, protectionism, and nationalism and return to their core principles of smaller government and American global leadership. This is conservative thought at its most timeless and quotable.

David Frum, the author of Dead Right, is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard. He lives in Washington, D.C.
