The University Bookman


Winter 2011

Editor’s Note

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.

A culture is perennially in need of renewal. A culture does not survive and prosper merely by being taken for granted; active defense is always required, and imaginative growth, too.
