Im a political nerd and this book was literally a page turner and what a history lesson wrapped up in this wonderful book. The author is one of my favorite political geniuses and a man that I wish more people who are interested in politics, especially about European liberalism(which is the equivalent to American Conversativism) took up reading.
Erik Von Kuehnelt is a polyglot, he spoke over 5 languages fluently and could read and write in many others as well. He was a man whos vision surpassed many and his knowledge of history and movements, should be studied by all political science students. What I love about this book is he dissects the history of the lefts fruition and shows how certain words for example, the word Democracy are used in an incorrect form.
For example, the US is a Republic, but the majority of people in this country and elsewhere in the world, use the world democracy freely, while they do not understand its true meaning. If we were a true democracy, America would literally be ancient Greece. Overall, amazing read, I highly recommend.
