About The University Bookman
For over five decades, The University Bookman, founded by Russell Kirk, has sought to redeem the time by identifying and discussing those books that diagnose the modern age and support the renewal of culture and the common good. Currently published online, the Bookman continues its mission of examining our times through the prism of what Kirk called the Permanent Things.
