Best of the Bookman 30 January 2011
Below please find a link to the first installment of a new regular feature, “The Best of the Bookman.” Each week, we will feature an essay or review from the University Bookman’s incomparable archives. These archives have never been accessible before and represent a unique view into conservative reflection for the past five decades and more.
The Tolstoy Locomotive on the Berlin Track
This review essay on Isaiah Berlin’s The Hedgehog and the Fox first appeared in The University Bookman, volume 20, no. 4 (Summer 1980).
The Classics Revisited 30 January 2011
Part of the Bookman’s mission is to continue the conversation of ideas through the recognition and discussion of important books. This column seeks to provide a service to those readers who have perhaps not found the time—due to the demands of work and other responsibilities—to read (or reread) such books yet. We plan to cover additional books in the coming months, both recognized classics as well as those of particular importance to the conservative intellectual tradition. We hope you enjoy “The Classics Revisited.”
