This is the first full-scale biography of William F. Buckley jrs.- the man who founded modern American conservatism, started the National Review and influenced a generation of politicians. It is not possible to grasp American politics in the 1980's without understanding the confluence of Buckley and the revival of the Right.
We become privy to the man behind the celebrity.This is the human Buckley, the loyal confidante of an extraordinarily diverse circle of friends. We see him develop from childhood to a man who as Ronald Reagan said,he "changed our country....indeed, our century."
