Wall Street Journal Reviews Russell Kirk: American Conservative

WSJ cover of RAK

A huge thanks to Lee Edwards and the Wall Street Journal for reviewing RUSSELL KIRK: AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE.

Who was this remarkable figure? The answer is provided in “Russell Kirk: American Conservative,” a beautifully written and deeply insightful biography by Bradley J. Birzer, a distinguished professor of history at Hillsdale College. Mr. Birzer traces the development of Kirk’s ideas, especially the influence of Burke, Dawson, Eliot and (surprise) the political philosopher Leo Strauss.
