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.”
