1. The Conservative (2013)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedThe Conservative was a journal edited and self-published sporadically by H. P. Lovecraft between 1915 and 1923. Some of its pieces were written by Lovecraft himself, but many of them were written by others, and included not just political and social commentary on the issues of the day, but also poetry, short stories and literary criticism. In spite of its name, Lovecraft’s style of conservatism bore little resemblance to what goes by that name in America today, and instead was first and foremost a call for a cultural revival – an appeal to a return to the deepest wellsprings that had inspired Western culture from its origins….

2. Concepts of a Black Conservative: Candid Political Incorrectness (2006)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedThe need for Black conservatives to be heard is crucial to our American way of life where only those Blacks who identify themselves as Democrats are presented to the public by the media as Black leaders. Miller explains that Blacks don’t prosper because they harbor a welfare mentality. Rather than blaming the current Black condition totally on racism, Miller encourages Blacks to become motivated to do for themselves and stop asking someone else to provide for them. Blacks need to take pride in their true Black heritage and love their blackness….

3. The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement: The Battle for Control of the Law (Princeton Studies in American Politics: Historical, International, and Comparative Perspectives) (2010)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedStarting in the 1970s, conservatives learned that electoral victory did not easily convert into a reversal of important liberal accomplishments, especially in the law. As a result, conservatives’ mobilizing efforts increasingly turned to law schools, professional networks, public interest groups, and the judiciary–areas traditionally controlled by liberals. Drawing from internal documents, as well as interviews with key conservative figures, The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement examines this sometimes fitful, and still only partially successful, conservative challenge to…

5. The John Wayne Code: An American Conservative Manifesto (2008)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedUpdated and revised, this edition of THE JOHN WAYNE CODE presents a post-Bush perspective of Conservatism, contrasting wisdom and grit from an icon of the Old Right with a movement that’s lost its soul. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the modern Conservative movement in this country is dominated by propagandists and charlatans, people without intellectual integrity. Conservatives have been fleeced and exploited and lied to by the “Conservative Entertainment Industry.” While they have been entrusted to lead the flock, they’ve led much of it far away from anything that resembles its…

6. The New Thought Police: Inside the Left’s Assault on Free Speech and Free Minds (2003)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedOur freedom to speak our minds is under attack. Like the Thought Police of George Orwell’s 1984, powerful special interest groups on the Left are mounting a withering assault on our rights in the name of "social equality." Liberty has been turned on its ear as the rights of the few restrict the freedom of everyone. In The New Thought Police, author Tammy Bruce, a self-described lesbian feminist activist, cuts through the deluge of politically correct speech and thought codes to expose the dangerous rise of Left-wing McCarthyism. Provocative and persuasive, this book is a clarion call to anyone…

8. Squashing Liberalism (2016)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedSquashing Liberalism not only pokes hole after hole in today’s liberal/progressive dogma, it does so in a way that’ll leave you in stitches, yet still arm you with loads of unwavering and proven conservative points with which you can render silent any babbling Marxist moron.

9. Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal (1967)

Best Conservative Political Books That You Need“The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world’s collapse.

10. Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution (2019)

Best Conservative Political Books That You Need“Informal and often humorous…an entertainingly told narrative of elite malfeasance” (Publishers Weekly), Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools tells the truth about the new American elites, a group whose power and wealth has grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has withered. The people who run America now barely interact with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes. They have total contempt for you. In Ship of Fools, Tucker Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords and answers the all-important…
Author(s): Tucker Carlson

11. The Conservative Revolution: The Movement That Remade America (2002)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedThe triumph of the conservative movement in reshaping American politics is one of the great untold stories of the past fifty years. At the end of World War II, hardly anyone in public life would admit to being a conservative, but as Lee Edwards shows in this magisterial work, in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, a small group of committed men and women began to chip away at the liberal colossus, and their descendants would scale the ramparts of power in the 1980s and 1990s. Not even the fall of Newt Gingrich has changed the indisputable fact that the movement has truly rewritten the rules of American political life, and the republic will…

12. Conservative Parties and the Birth of Democracy (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics) (2017)

Based on rich historical and quantitative evidence, the book offers a major reinterpretation of European history and the question of how stable political democracy is achieved. The barriers to inclusive political rule, Ziblatt finds, were not…

13. Conservative Heroes: Fourteen Leaders Who Shaped America, from Jefferson to Reagan (2019)

Best Conservative Political Books That You NeedConservatism in America, as one early-twentieth-century politician said, is “as old as the Republic itself.” But what are its foundational principles, and how did they form the modern conservative movement? Author Garland S. Tucker III tells the story in this lively look at fourteen champions of conservative thought—some well known, others hardly remembered at all.
