This was the cover article from last week's Weekly Standard. It is written by David Gelernter who is, in my opinion, one of the great thinkers of our age (you may recall that he was one of the victims of the Unabomber, who survived).

It details the philosphical underpinnings of Benjamin Disraeli, who is acknowledged by all to be the father of modern conservatism. I have studied Disraeli for a long time. I already knew most (if not all) of what Gelernter wrote, but he has put it all in a context that made it all new and absolutely mindblowing for me.
