IN THE MAIL: A new edition of Barry Goldwater’s The Conscience of a Conservative, with a new introduction by George Will and, somewhat weirdly, an afterword by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. In this moment of Republican doubt and disarray, I suspect it will find a lot of readers.

And, in what may be an interesting metaphor for Republicans, the book that Amazon recommends along with it is Defiant Gardens, which actually looks kind of cool.
