Editor’s Note

Moving Briskly

Fall at the University Bookman has gotten off to a brisk start. We have published a symposium on conservatism and empire that garnered a number of notices across the web. We are preparing another symposium later this year; details to follow. This week, we are featuring one of a series of pieces reprinted from our 1994 Memorial issue devoted to the memory of our founder Russell Kirk, as well as a new review on E. D. Hirsh’s latest book on education, which has been a consistent theme of our reviews and articles since the journal’s founding in 1960. I also commend to you the interview with Timothy S. Goeglein about his personal memoir of his years in the Bush White House; for a political book, it is moving and speaks profoundly to the importance of redemption and forgiveness in public as well as private life.

There is more to come in the next few weeks, including reviews of the new Chesterton biography by Ian Ker, a roundup of recent books trying to explain the economic crisis, further reflections on modern poetry, and much else besides.

We hope you visit the site often, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (@ubookman) or join our Facebook page. You can also contribute to the Bookman through this link, as the journal is supported by grants and donations.

Best wishes,

Gerald Russello

Digging Up the Bones of Empire
Russell Kirk
Fall 2016

The conservative believes that the individual is foolish, although the species is wise; therefore, unlike the confident intellectual, he declines to undertake the reconstruction of society and human nature.
