How an unlikely group of academics came to power in Washington and provided the philosophical justification for the war on Iraq The teachings of political theorist Leo Strauss (18991973) have recently received new attention, as political observers have become aware of the influence Strausss students have had in shaping conservative agendas of the Bush administrationincluding the war on Iraq. This provocative book examines Strausss ideas and the ways in which they have been appropriated, or misappropriated, by senior policymakers. Anne Norton, a political theorist trained by some of Strausss most famous students, is well equipped to write on Strauss and Straussians. She tells three interwoven narratives: the story of Leo Strauss, a Jewish German-born migr, who carried European philosophy into a new world; the story of the philosophic lineage that came from Leo Strauss; and the story of how America has been made a moral battleground by the likes of Paul Wolfowitz, Leon Kass, Carnes Lord, and Irving KristolStraussian conservatives committed to an American imperialism they believe will usher in a new world order.
