William F. Buckley Jr. (1925-2008) founded National Review, hosted Firing Line for over thirty years, and by means of his charm, argumentativeness, avid views, and extensive networking, was a major force in the rise of conservatism. Felzenberg, who teaches at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School, traces Buckley’s rise to national prominence from his upbringing in a large Catholic family similar in some ways to the Kennedys. The focus of his study, however, is Buckley’s relationships with politicians, especially presidents. Buckley was a harsh critic of Eisenhower, a close friend of Reagan, and Felzenberg delves into Buckley’s roles as advisor, provocateur, and relentless advocate of conservative ideology.
