This issue is dedicated to ideology and political practices of conservatism, involving an analysis of various national realities and historical epochs from the middle 19th to the early 20th century. From the ideological and political point of view, conservatism is not solid and homogeneous, though it has features peculiar to right-wing, counterrevolutionary, and traditionalist movements. During its evolution, conservatism as a political and social doctrine had several movements formed within it — movements having little in common and sometimes opposite in intentions, yet related: Catholic socialism, corporatism, fascism, right-wing authoritarianism. This issue contains research articles offering an analysis of this phenomenon on the example of European, Asian, and American countries, which allows the reader to get acquainted with various national manifestations of conservatism, outwardly dissimilar, though united by common ideological roots. For a century and a half, liberalism, socialism, and conservatism in various forms have been determining the political and social struggle in most countries of the world. They are inseparable from each other, and, as Immanuel Wallerstein put it, the interaction between them “more fundamentally reflected the constant reconstruction of political alliances” and determined the formation of modern political reality in the global world. Conservative ideas are, to some extent, present in many social and political movements that are not even related to conservatism by their origins. The current issue focuses on the study of this phenomenon.
