From the dust jacket front flap:
"There is more harsh fact and hard sense in this slight book than will emerge from all of the chatter of this year's session of Congress, this year's campaign for the Presidency and all other offices ... Whereas the rest of the tribe of professional politicians keep a respectful distance in beating about the bush of truth, Barry Goldwater, the Republican Senator from Arizona, is not afraid to pluck it up by the roots."—George Morgenstern—Chicago Sunday Tribune
THE CONSCIENCE OF A CONSERVATIVE is sensational public revelation of that which is seldom if ever disclosed namely, the heartfelt convictions of a Washington politician.
Senator Barry Goldwater is not the only member of Congress who holds these truths but he is the only person in high public office who has frankly and publicly put all these truths together into a complete and cogent program of foreign and domestic policy.
This supremely sensible and eminently courageous book will shock orthodox politicians as much as it will gratify millions of Americans who are sick and tired of political contests between meaningless equivocations and undifferentiated distinctions.
The revealed conscience of this distinguished and singularly successful political Conservative will shed helpful light on the fabrication of both political platforms.
More important than that is the clear warning this book sounds about impending dangers to the survival of American freedom and the action it recommends to avoid these dangers.
EVERY AMERICAN WHO LOVES HIS COUNTRY SHOULD READ THIS BOOK.
