In his book, which takes its name from Barry Goldwater's classic work THE CONSCIENCE OF A CONSERVATIVE, John Dean, a key figure in the Nixon Administration and longtime conservative Republican, examines the rise of authoritarian conservatism within the Republican Party, whose current aim appears to be to create a one-party country run by a narrow clique of theocrats and political ultra-conservatives. However, they are far from true conservatives, as Dean defines them. Robertson Dean's reading is solid. The reading style is neither somnolent nor ranting. But at times it seems too clinical, too unemotional. While the words speak to the author's deep-felt opinions, the narration doesn't always reflect them.
