Neoconservatism and Its Discontents

A couple of long articles to peruse when you’re in the mood to delve into a sophisticated foreign policy debate: First, Charles R. Kesler, in the Claremont Review of Books, presents one of the few critiques of neoconservatism by someone who actually understands who the neoconservatives are and what they believe. (Kesler is one of the “superhawks,” like TAS senior editor Angelo Codevilla.) Second, Joshua Muravchik, in Commentary, argues that Iraq has not discredited neoconservatism. Muravchik engages Kesler a little bit, though I wish he had done so more. I’ll probably have more to say about this debate as some point, but for now I just wanted to recommend the essential background reading.
