'A tumultuous onslaught ... a substantial piece of work' -- Anthony Quinton, The Times
'[A] powerful critique of the major beliefs of modern conservatism ... [Honderich] shows how much a rigourous philosopher can contribute to understanding the fashionable but deeply ruinous absurdities of his times.' -- Bhiku Parekh, New Statesman
'The whole book must be read. Indeed only the final page, like a good detective story, brings with it the full philosophical discovery' -- Michael Foot, Observer
'[An] extended analysis of conservative political theory by an eminent radical philosopher ... a significant and timely event' -- Noel O'Sullivan, Utilitas
'My schematic outline doesn't begin to convey the passion that informs the analyses in Conservatism, nor does it suggest the wealth of arguments it contains. Well argued or badly argued, Conservatism is relentlessly, fiercely argued.' -- Robert Fullinwider, Philosophical Books
'Ted Honderich's self-righteousness may not reach to the height of a Robespierre or a Lenin; but it is for all that alarming. Given his failure of imagination concerning every experience and opinion that he does not share, one must hope that he remains confined to a university chair' -- Roger Scruton, Philosophical Quarterly
