Bloomsbury (Sept 2014)
What does it mean to be a conservative in an age so sceptical of conservatism?
How can we live in the presence of our 'canonized forefathers' at a time when their cultural, religious and political bequest is so routinely rejected? With soft left-liberalism as the dominant force in Western politics, what can conservatives now contribute to public debate that will not be dismissed as pure nostalgia? A personal and witty book, in which the author explains how to live as a conservative in spite of the pressures to exist otherwise.
How to be a Conservative was chosen among political books by the Sunday Times and as book of the year by Labour MP Jon Cruddas in The New Statesman.
