Review

In a terrific new book, The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement, professor Steven M. Teles charts the success of the conservative legal establishment over the past several decades. Digging past liberal clich├ęs about an all-powerful Federalist Society tree fort, Teles charts a complicated countermobilization that took place in legal academia and conservative public-interest law, against law schools and a government in thrall with liberal ideas. He chronicles the rise of a multifaceted organizational and institutional structure that has become the only game in town. (Dahilia Lithwick Slate )

Teles's book is . . . a piece of first-rate scholarship based on archival research and many interviews. . . . [T]he Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement is a fine piece of historical scholarship and an important contribution to understanding strategies for combating entrenched political and intellectual elites. (Charlotte Allen The Weekly Standard )

Steven Teles . . . examines a complex phenomenon still playing itself out in The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement. He does so thoughtfully and provocatively, and with access to key insiders and archival material. His book should be interesting to readers across the political spectrum. . . . Teles's book provides a panoramic, nonpartisan portrait of the sober and serious side of the conservative legal movement. In doing so, it can hopefully lead toward a respectful, constructive dialogue about the role of law in society. (Ronald Goldfarb Washington Lawyer )

I am recommending Teles's book to all my liberal and progressive colleagues. . . . Perhaps if liberals and progressives pay enough attention to the lessons about problem-solving and adaptation taught in this valuable book, Prof. Teles will have an opportunity to write a sequel, The Renaissance of the Liberal Legal Network. (Michael Avery Suffolk University Law Review )

Lawyers fill an important role in American democracy, as the conduit for transmitting social mores from the nation's elite to the people, and vice versa. How they do this is something sociologists have spent relatively little time researching, but Steven M. Teles has taken a step to remedy this by producing an engaging, insightful, and remarkably objective analysis of how the climate of legal ideas actually changes. His book is neither history nor polemic, but a scholarly study of how an ideological minority organized despite overwhelming hostility, knot an effective (if still minority) force against the prevailing orthodoxy. . . . [T]eles's book is an important and persuasive account of the growth and success of a corps of intellectuals who are challenging the hegemony of big government in American society. (Timothy Sandefur California Lawyer )

[T]his new book by Steven Teles . . . will appeal mainly if not only to legal and politics specialists, and those interested in the USA at that. However, his survey of the ways in which conservative law grew from the 1960s to the turn of the twenty-first century reveals even more of interest to anyone trying to understand how conservative values and beliefs . . . were and have been internalized in US law schools and the education there, as well as in legal practice and the federal bench. (Stuart Hannabuss Library Review )

No published study about the conservative legal movement of which I am aware can compete with the information, detail, perspectives, and stories that Teles has packed into his book. (Roy B. Flemming Law and Politics Book Review )

Well written and well researched. . . . Activists on both the Left and the Right can learn about the tactics of intellectual insurgency and networking. Political scientists can benefit from Teles's explanation of how liberalism became entrenched in legal institutions just as conservatives were starting to dominate electoral politics. And grant-makers can learn the importance of adopting a long time-horizon when engaged in a battle of ideas. (R. Shep Melnick Claremont Review of Books )

Teles provides a thorough analytical chronology of the emergence of intellectuals, networks, political entrepreneurs, and patrons as a new level of political competition in the legal arena, which he contends has made elections themselves less significant. . . . This is an exceptionally valuable resource for understanding recent changes, both liberal and conservative, in the legal and political spheres. (R. Heineman Choice )

This fine book will surely become the leading authority on the efforts of modern conservatives to shape law. It should be of interest to a wide range of scholars and lawyers. (James W. Ely, Jr. Law and History Review )

This excellent book deserves to be widely read and discussed. . . . It can be read with profit by historians of conservatism, by political scientists interested in American political development, and by scholars interested in the complexities of large-scale change in legal doctrine and structure and its relation to conventional politics. (Richard Adelstein Constitutional Political Economy )

[T]houghtful and well-researched. (Andy Lamey Metapsychology Online Reviews )

Review

The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement provides an essential road map to the organizational mobilization of conservatives over the past quarter century. (Al Gore, corecipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize )
