This essay examines the role of rhetorical silence as a part of the theorizing about character in the early American republic. The case study concerns James Madison’s deliberate and continuous rhetorical silences about the comprehensive notes he took at the Federal Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. I argue that Madison’s rhetorical silences regarding his notes illustrate the shifting.

Cloaked in Virtue is the first book to take a critical view of the political ideas of Leo Strauss himself by careful attention to his own writings before and after his emigration to the United States. The result is a critical examination of the political theory of Leo Strauss, lifting the veil of intentional obfuscation, and its influence on the neoconservative foreign policy of the George W. Bush administration.

It is now commonly acknowledged that numerous key players in and around the Bush administration’s planning of the Iraq invasion were connected through a common background in the political philosophy of Leo Strauss, a German-born University of Chicago professor who died in 1973. These Straussian "neocons" were held responsible for exploiting the September 11th attacks in order to further their own foreign policy agenda.

Xenos has performed the service of digging deep into the "esoteria" -- if that is indeed a word -- of Leo Strauss's political theory, demonstrating his deep affinities with fascism in his early writings, and his continued attraction to a quiet authoritarianism throughout his career in the United States. As a political theorist who has had to deal the cult of Strauss in higher education, this book is useful as a refutation of the supposed innocuousness of the master's thought. The book is difficult, but necessarily so, as it follows the strange path of Strauss's thought.

Three cheers for Nick Xenos from anyone who is concerned about the pernicious influence of his work on the neo-conservatives both in and out of the American academy.

Several people have recently written about "the Straussians" and their influence on U.S. foreign policy. Some of that work boils down to conspiracy theory. Some of it is personal and weird. This book is different. Xenos offers a serious, thoughtful, political analysis of Strauss's work and the network of Strauss's followers. The result is powerful and damning.
