Compassionate Conservatism: What It Is, What It Does, and How It Can Transform America, by Marvin Olasky

According to George W. Bush, Marvin Olasky is “compassionate conservatism’s leading thinker.” A professor of journalism at the University of Texas, Olasky has been a Bush adviser since 1993 and for the past decade a fixture in the network of well-endowed foundations, policy institutes, and publications that sustains this country’s conservative intellectuals.
