Welcome to the New Bookman
Welcome to the new University Bookman! After some significant behind the scenes reworking, the country’s oldest conservative book review is back with a new online presence, continuing our decades-long discussion of the important books and ideas of our age.
The new site features exclusive interviews, reviews, essays, and a look back at the archives in a regular “Best of the Bookman” feature.
Our inaugural postings feature a classic Bookman review from John Lukacs and new items from Jim Person and William Anthony Hay. Check back for our weekly updates of new exclusive content.
Once you have had a look around, please consider supporting the Bookman, which is easy to do by contributing here.
We look forward to continuing the Bookman’s distinguished tradition in defending the Permanent Things.

By 'the Permanent Things' [T. S. Eliot] meant those elements in the human condition that give us our nature, without which we are as the beasts that perish. They work upon us all in the sense that both they and we are bound up in that continuity of belief and institution called the great mysterious incorporation of the human race.
