Abstract: Accepted on its own terms, "The Twilight of the Élites" is just fine: a readable digest of various strands in current conservative thought, with some parts of which I disagree violently, to other parts of which I am far from antagonistic. It presents a simplistic opposition between ‘élite’ and ‘traditional’ thought without explaining how social conservatism found itself a bedfellow with economic extremism, but that is probably because it is less an effort at persuasion than solace for the already converted. It’s not an unduly self-important book, and is leavened with a droll sense of humour.
