William F. Buckley Jr., one of the most versatile public figures in America, is the authentic, authoritative journalistic voice of conservatism today.
One of the most widely syndicated and intensively read of all columnists -- appearing in over 300 newspapers, Buckley is the founder of National Review, the lively and respected journal of conservative thought and opinion.
Buckley is the also the star of "Firing Line," the weekly television debate program which airs on the Public Broadcasting Service. Guests have included George Bush, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, J.K. Galbraith, Valery Giscard d'Estaing, Barry Goldwater, Germaine Greeg, Edward Heath, Henry Kissinger, The Dalai Lama, Norman Mailer, Groucho Marx, James Michener, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Theodore White.
Buckley has written many best-selling books, including God and Man at Yale, Saving the Queen, Stained Glass and Overdrive.
Buckley has also contributed articles to most American publications, among them: Architectural Digest, Art & Antiques, The Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, Foreign Affairs, Harper's, Life, The New Republic, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Playboy, Reader's Digest, The Saturday Evening Post, Saturday Review, and TV Guide.
Buckley's career has taken him from Yale to the United Nations and into politics and journalism, where he has become something of an institution as a successful debater, political analyst and critic.
