The University Bookman

University Bookman“Reviewing Books that Build Culture.” Founded by Russell Kirk in 1960 and currently edited by Gerald J. Russello, The University Bookman is the flagship journal of the Russell Kirk Center and one of America’s premier reviewer publications. In its pages, readers find thoughtful assessments of leading books and authors written by some of today’s most gifted conservative minds.

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.

Birzer on Kirk

book cover image Russell Kirk: American Conservative, the new biography from Bradley J. Birzer, is now out from the University Press of Kentucky. Lee Edwards reviewed it for the Wall Street Journal and calls it “a beautifully written and deeply insightful biography.” And Wilfred M. McClay said in National Review, “Given the confused and dispirited state of American conservatism at the present moment, it is high time for a Russell Kirk revival. The appearance of Bradley J. Birzer’s splendid and exhaustively researched biography of Kirk just might provide the catalyst needed to set it in motion.”
