Former Republican Congressman Mickey Edwards argues that the conservative movement has strayed from its founding principles. His book, Reclaiming Conservatism, offers a critique of the movement's current incarnation — and a blueprint for its future success.

Edwards is a lecturer at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and a founding trustee of the Heritage Foundation.
