If you love Bill Buckley, you’ll needÂ Athwart History, which includes dozens of pieces that have never before appeared between hard covers. If you don’t yet know him, be prepared for a dazzling ride through postwar America and the world.
Buckley’s wise and sprightly words range over six decades and everything from domestic politics to the worldwide struggle with Communism. He rescued conservatism from its troglodyte ‘friends’ and liberal enemies and thereby made America’s rejuvenation possible.

William F. Buckley Jr., like H. L. Mencken and George Orwell, needs an anthology to put his work in focus. You will thank Linda Bridges and Roger Kimball for collecting these high points of an Alpine career. And you will thank WFB for his fifty-plus years of combat, fun, passion, and appreciation–a labor of love, for his craft, his country, and his God.
