Jesús Velasco examines the origins and history of the neoconservative political movement so closely identified with the George W. Bush administration’s policies of regime change and democratization. Analyzing the movement’s intellectual background, institutions, financial supporters, publications, and points of influence, Velasco distinguishes the first generation of neoconservatives, which emerged in the late 1970s, from the generation that rose to power in the 2000s. Velasco's study is based in large part on interviews with such key neoconservative figures as Irving Kristol and Richard Perle and on access to the archives of such organizations as the Committee on the Present Danger and the Coalition for a Democratic Majority. This work provides important new insights into how this cadre of intellectuals―once on the margins of the political scene―came so dominantly to affect U.S. foreign relations.

"This is an excellent and interesting book. Through extensive use of archival material, Velasco brings to light a number of facts that are not widely known, particularly with regard to the funding apparatus that financed the neocons’ political and policy endeavors."(Benjamin Ginsberg, The Johns Hopkins University)
