American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia (published in 2006) surveys the intellectual foundations of conservatism in the United States. It focuses on developments after World War II, with entries on key individuals, organizations, and publications, along with essays on the various strands of U.S. conservatism and issues central to conservative thought. The editors, taking a "big tent" view, have included discussions of classical liberalism and libertarianism. The text is well written, insightful, and accessible; the format is reader-friendly; the price is right considering the effort that went into this. Thanks to ISI for making it happen.
