Review

"In recent decades, American politics has been transformed by the explosion of right-wing media outlets--from Rush Limbaugh and talk radio to Roger Ailes and Fox News to countless publishing imprints, websites, and little magazines. With Messengers of the Right, historian Nicole Hemmer has written the single best book to date about the roots and growth of the ideas and networks underneath it all. Deeply researched, subtly argued, and lucidly and often humorously written, this first-rate work of scholarship instantly joins the must-read list for any student of the history of conservatism, the history of modern media, or indeed the history of the polarized political culture in which we find ourselves today."--David Greenberg, author of Republic of Spin: An Inside History of the American Presidency



"Read Nicole Hemmer's superb new book, and you'll never see 'liberal mainstream media' in the same way again. With rigorous research and sparkling prose, Messengers of the Right tells the fascinating stories of the people whose core convictions and communications artistry helped create modern conservatism. This is political history--and American history--at its finest."--Margaret O'Mara, University of Washington



"Nicole Hemmer's well-researched and well-argued book Messengers of the Right . . . [emphasizes] the contributions of three 'media activists' who helped give coherence to the midcentury right: the radio host and political organizer Clarence Manion, the book publisher Henry Regnery, and the longtime National Review publisher William A. Rusher. Hemmer convincingly shows how all three helped pioneer the ideologically charged conservative media of our own time."--New York Review of Books
