Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty

by Lee Edwards, 400 Pages
Publisher: Intercollegiate Studies Institute, October 30, 2017

Lee Edwards is not just a leading historian of the conservative movement; he has been an active player in the movement longer than anyone else.

As the Daily Caller noted in a recent profile, Edwards “has lived conservative history like none other.” And he brings that history to life in Just Right.

This memoir is full of colorful stories from a man who has been present at nearly every major event of the modern conservative movement and has done it all in a remarkable, multifaceted career.

Just Right reveals:

  • Edwards’s insider account of Barry Gold­water’s pivotal 1964 presidential campaign, for which he ran national publicity
  • How he wrote the first political biography of Ronald Reagan—and discovered early on that Reagan was a secret intellectual who read Hayek, Bastiat, and Chambers
  • Excerpts from his fifty-year-long correspondence with William F. Buckley Jr., revealing new aspects of WFB
  • Why the New York Times dubbed Edwards “The ‘Voice’ of the Silent Majority”
  • How he organized the largest public demonstration in support of our men in Vietnam
  • How he created the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington, pushing against the federal bureaucracy for two decades to make it happen

Lee Edwards’s memoir appears at a critical time in the history of American conservatism. In an inspiring chapter aimed at the rising generation, Dr. Edwards shows how conservatives can remain a major political and philosophical force in America.

“Lee Edwards has always been in the forefront of the struggle to restore America, to bring it back to its ancient moorings. . . . Lee has fought hard with uncommon intelligence and resourcefulness. But he has fought fair and always without rancor. . . . Truly, a man for all seasons.”  —President Ronald Reagan

    The chapters on Goldwater should have the title, “Just Right Only When His Name Was On The Ballot.”
