The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right by Max Boot | Conversation Starters
When Trump declared that Mexican immigrants are rapists and that he will be running for president, Max Boot thought he was witnessing America turn into the dystopian story that science fiction wrote about. A historian who has studied the presidencies of respected Republicans like Roosevelt, Lincoln, and Reagan, he couldn't believe how conservatives could support a reality TV personality. He experienced an ideological crisis. He recounts how he changed loyalties from being a foreign policy adviser for Republicans to a columnist who criticized Trump and his administration. His book is a record of his ideological transformation. He no longer calls himself a Republican, but he has not joined the Democrats either. The Corrosion of Conservatism is the featured Notable Book of the Year by the Washington Post.
