Disclaimer: This is an occidental conservative reading list, highlighting the ancestral conservative traditions of Europeans or those of the European Diaspora (e.g. Australia, Canada, New Zealand, U.S.A., etc.). We do not claim that occidental conservatism necessarily is the best, but merely a unique tradition of Westerners. We recognize that there are other non-Western conservative traditions. For example, for Asians, there are various Asian conservative traditions; for people with ancestry from the Middle East and North Africa, various Arabic/Persian conservative traditions; for Hispanics with ancestry from Mexico, and Central & South America, various Amerindian/Mestizo conservative traditions; for those of African heritage, various African conservative traditions; and for people with ancestry from India, various Indo-Dravidian conservative traditions; etc. We leave it to others to develop non-Western conservative reading lists.
