book cover The Character of Our Constitution
by Bruce Frohnen
Rights and Duties: Reflections on Our Conservative Constitution by Russell Kirk. Spence Publishing Company, 1997, 208 pp., $28 cloth.

The twentieth-century conservative is concerned, first of all, with the regeneration of the spirit and character—with the perennial problem of the inner order of the soul, the restoration of the ethical understanding, and the religious sanction upon which any life worth living is founded. This is conservatism at the highest.
