This was a banner year for conservatives, as Republicans took control of both the Senate and the House and the centerpieces of the Obama administration’s legacy (Obamacare, foreign policy) crumbled. Conservatives are dominating politics and conservative thought is popular in popular culture as well. There have been a number of fantastic books out this year to help drive the country’s shift to the right. If you’re looking for a last-minute stocking stuffer idea, here are a few suggestions:
