The articles in this section rightfully correct the impression that liberal activism died in the 1970s, but we suggest they go too far in downplaying the significance of conservatism for that decade. Conservatives organized at the grass roots, and began to develop new tools of conservative governance to counteract the power of liberalism that the essays in this volume demonstrate.
