Leo Strauss has been simultaneously condemned by the Left as an extreme opponent of liberal democracy and celebrated by the Right as a defender of Western civilization. Rejecting both of these portrayals, Grant N. Havers shifts the debate beyond the conventional parameters of our age. In Leo Strauss and Anglo-American Democracy, Havers interprets Leo Strauss' political philosophy from a conservative standpoint, depicting Strauss as a Cold War liberal with a strong secular bias who believed Anglo-American democracy was the one true universal regime that could be embraced and practiced by all human beings regardless of time, place, or creed.
