Summer 2011

Editor’s Note

Pressing On

This summer saw the passing of Otto von Habsburg, a living embodiment—perhaps the last such—of the European order swept away by the Great War. We have included a fitting tribute to the Archduke—whose son, Karl, studied with Russell Kirk as a Wilbur Fellow—by Denis Kitzinger.

After six months of publishing exclusively online, the Bookman has built up a sizable archive of both new and classic pieces. Just this week we have a review of Francis Cardinal George’s new book and a classic piece by Jeffrey Hart. Please browse through those articles or reviews you might have missed—including our debate on the future of poetry (with Eugene Schlanger and Mark Anthony Signorelli), Craig Bernthal’s Newman, and the legacy of the Southern Critics by Tobias Lanz.

We have more to come this summer, including reviews of books on the Enlightenment, judicial tyranny, and the work of Anthony Esolen. Please follow us on Twitter and join the new Russell Kirk Center page on Facebook.

Have a great summer.

A poor man, if he has dignity, honesty, the respect of his neighbors, a realization of his duties, a love of the wisdom of his ancestors, and possibly some taste for knowledge or beauty, is rich in the unbought grace of life.
