The American Conservative


The American Conservative exists to promote a "Main Street" conservatism that opposes unchecked power in government and business; promotes the flourishing of families and communities through vibrant markets and free people; and embraces realism and restraint in foreign affairs based on America's vital national interests.


What We Do

We pursue this mission by publishing hundreds of essays, articles, and blog posts each year in The American Conservative (TAC) print magazine and at, by training and providing an outlet for young journalists, by informing policy-makers and congressional staffers on the Hill, and by hosting special conferences and events.

Great contributors writing about things that are important to us all. - Deborah T.

This is a truly magnificent thing: a current affairs magazine that makes me feel proud to be American. Its well-researched cover articles shed light on the true state of the country where most media these days are happy to battle in the culture wars. Its thoughtful and healthy-minded book reviews broaden the intellect and summon up the American spirit. Left and right wing writers alike are treated with respect and examined in detail. - J.S.
