NEW PROJECT

There are structural problems in the U.S. economy that benefit the richest one-tenth of one percent and work to the detriment of the middle class. Professor Bogus believes that one of these problems is corporate giantism fueled by mergers and acquisitions. Very big companies are merging or gobbling up smaller firms at alarming rates. In a major new article, Professor Bogus argues for a radical change in antitrust law to confront this issue, and why antitrust needs to become a subject of wide public debate, as it was during the Progressive Era. This article is accessible to readers not conversant with antitrust law. To access it, click on its title and citation below:

Edmund Burke -- the great eighteenth century British statesman -- was both a liberal and a conservative.  For a relatively concise but complete profile of Burke, and an explanation of why by today's standards Burke may be considered either a liberal or a traditional conservative -- but emphatically not a libertarian, neoconservative, or social conservative -- read Professor Bogus' article Rescuing Burke, 72 Missouri Law Review 387 (2007).

Here are some quotes from Edmund Burke:

"We must all obey the great law of change.  It is the most powerful law of nature, and the means perhaps of its conservation."

"Society become a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are dead, and those who are to be born."

"The individual is foolish; the multitude, for the moment is foolish, when they act without deliberation; but the species is wise, and, when time is given to it, as a species it always acts right."

"Whatever each man can separately do, without trespassing upon others, he has a right to do for himself; and he a right to all which society, with all its combinations and skill and force, can do in his favor.  In this partnership all men have equal rights; but not to equal things."

LIBRARY JOURNAL

Buckley: William F. Buckley Jr. and the Rise of American Conservatism (starred review).

"The erudite and entertaining provocateur William F. Buckley was a founding father of modern conservatism. Bogus (law, Roger Williams Univ.; Why Lawsuits Are Good for America) hasn’t written a straight biography but circles his subject as he tells the story of the conservative movement’s origins. Despite the handicaps of being both a lawyer and an academic, Bogus is a first-rate writer. He clearly and fairly explains the competing philosophies of different conservative sects—Burkean conservatism, libertarianism, Ayn Rand’s objectivism. His penned portraits of Whittaker Chambers, William F. Buckley Sr., Russell Kirk, and others are sharp and revealing. He has a deep conversance with the material, yet he wears his knowledge lightly....VERDICT: This is an insightful book that will please anyone interested in midcentury American history and politics. Anyone serious about political philosophy will learn from it. Highly recommended."

 logo-washingtontimes

"Remarkably perceptive.…Bogus rises to the occasion, crafting a formative biography and history that is not only interesting and relevant, but an essential study of Buckley and the post-World War II conservative movement.…This is an important book. Anyone, of any political stripe, interested in learning more about the rise of conservatism as a movement in the mid-20th century needs to read Carl T. Bogus' Buckley."
