One of Russell Kirk’s earliest articles, an examination (and attack on) of conscription. Source: South Atlantic Quarterly 44 (1945): 82-99.
As I’m finishing (well, getting close to finishing) the main draft of my biography of Russell Kirk, I’ve had the chance and privilege to explore Kirk’s magazine, University Bookman. Kirk founded it in 1960 and edited it until his death in the spring of 1994. It’s a treasure trove. In this issue, critical academic and literary figures Jerry Pournelle, Anthony Kerrigan, and W.T. Couch contribute. My friend, Gerald Russello, now holds the prestigious position of editor.
