Modern Flaws and Lasting Norms
by Nicholas Joost
In this “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1969, Dr. Nicholas Joost reviews Russell Kirk’s Enemies of the Permanent Things. Readers interested in history and literature will be interested in the tone as much as his fascinating treatment of Kirk’s theme.

The Deviant University
by Donald Marquand Dozer
This 1969 essay, written during the educational uprisings of the time, is probably not the response to the student radicals expected from a conservative writer. And his critique of the modern university system still hits home today.

Mere unthinking negative opposition to the current of events, clutching in despair at what we still retain, will not suffice in this age. A conservatism of instinct must be reinforced by a conservatism of thought and imagination.
