Professor Kristol discussed his book Neo-Conservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea, Selected Essays 1949-1995, published by The Free Press. He talked at length about the development of his personal philosophy which began with Marxism in the 1940s. His outlook became more conservative over the years and the term “neo-conservative” was coined as a criticism of Kristol’s work in the 1980s. He has since adopted the term as apt and descriptive of his thought. His son, William Kristol, formerly an aide to Vice President Quayle, publishes a new conservative magazine, The Weekly Standard. close
