Nationalism is an ideology that has faced attacks from both the right and the left—but what is its true meaning, and how has it evolved over time? Rich Lowry offers a passionate defense of nationalism and the ways he believes it could move the country forward.

Rich Lowry is editor in chief of the preeminent conservative magazine National Review, a political commentator, and the author of a weekly online column for Politico. A bestselling author, his latest book is The Case for Nationalism. Noah Rothman (moderator) is associate editor of Commentary magazine and the author of Unjust: Social Justice and the Unmaking of America.
