The remarkable history of The Heritage Foundation, its influential founder, and the conservative movement in America.
Leading the Way tells the story of how Ed Feulner has transformed policymaking in Washington and has led The Heritage Foundation into becoming the most influential conservative think tank in the nation. Under Ed Feulner and for 36 years, Heritage has shaped politics with conservative solutions for such critical issues as entitlements, national security, missile defense, health care, welfare reform, immigration, free trade, energy, and the role of the family and religion in society. Today, with over hundreds of thousands of members and an annual budget of more than $80 million, Heritage is a permanent Washington institution and the leading exponent of conservative ideas in America and around the world.
The man who made it happen is Ed Feulner, intellectual entrepreneur, hands-on manager, legendary fundraiser, presidential adviser, bestselling author, and world traveler--a man who never stops and was described by The Economist as "one of the most influential conservatives in America."
LEE EDWARDS is a leading historian of the conservative movement, having written The Conservative Revolution, acclaimed biographies of William F. Buckley, Ronald Reagan, and Barry Goldwater, among many other books. He is the distinguished fellow in conservative thought at The Heritage Foundation and an adjunct professor of politics at Catholic University.
