Editorial Reviews


"A fine study of conservative thought in politics, religion, philosophy and literature"

"Kirk tells his story of the conservative stream with the warmth that belongs to it. Even Americans who do not agree may feel the warmth--and feel, perhaps, the wonder of conservative intuition and prophecy, speaking resonantly across the disappointing decades."

"Mr. Kirk has marshaled an impressive list of American and British conservative thinkers: men who are reacting against the collectivist universe on battlegrounds ranging from party politics to religion."
--Frederick D. Wilhelmsen,

"Prof. Kirk has succeeded remarkably well in distilling the essence from the voluminous writings of these men and in conveying the spirit of their thinking to his reader and a style that is never dull and often exciting."
--John H. Hallowell,
The Journal of Politics

From the Inside Flap

"A profound critique of contemporary mass society, and a vivid and poetic image -- not a program, an image -- of how that society might better itself. The Conservative Mind is, in important respects, the twentieth century's own version of the Reflections on the Revolution in France... Kirk was an artist, a visionary, almost a prophet."
-- David Frum, author of
Dead Right

"Kirk is assured a place of prominence in the intellectual histories for helping to define the ethical basis of conservatism. He has tried to pull conservatism away from the utilitarian premises of libertarianism, toward which conservatism often veers, toward a philosophy rooted in ethics and culture."
The Wall Street Journal

"I have been one of your fans since the time many years ago when I read The Conservative Mind."
-- Richard Nixon

Always the perfect gift
