Friday, May 09, 2003 Books: Leo Strauss and the American Right
'Like other dogmas which have been used to support those in power -- Social Darwinism and eugenics come to mind -- neoconservatism is just the latest apologia for the up-to-date reactionary.'

This is an excerpt from an interesting and lengthy (for amazon) review of Drury's book. It rings true, but to be sure one would have to read both Strauss and his critics. Is it worth the effort or is Strauss already categorized and dismissed?
