Aaron McLeod, a former Wilbur Fellow, has written an excellent Summary of Russell Kirk’s The Conservative Mind, the first number in the Alabama Policy Institute’s “Essential Readings for the Modern Conservative” series. Aaron takes 70 pages to explain the themes and approach of Kirk’s 509-page book, and we commend him for his fine work and recommend this free PDF e-book to all who would like to become acquainted with Kirk’s thought and the conservative intellectual tradition. It will whet your appetite.
