9780312176440: Conservatism From the French Revolution To the 1990s

Pekka Suvanto portrays conservatism as a phenomenon of political and ideological development from the French Revolution up to the present. The countries used for comparative purposes are mainly Britain, the United States, Germany and France. Conservatism is not a homogeneous movement: in each country it has its own particular character. But a common feature is a conservative way of thinking based on certain principles. Its roots go back to the thought of the Ancient World and Christianity. The pragmatism has enabled conservatives to adapt ideas originally alien to them. They have become defenders of democracy and supporters of liberalism. Conservatism has, however, been uncompromising as far as its central task is concerned: revolution aimed at the total transformation of society must be prevented. In this respect it achieved a great victory when the Cold War ended in the collapse of communism.
