“Gerald Russello has given us a penetrating analysis of Kirk’s thought, and of the increasingly contested elements of American conservatism. Even more impressive is Russello’s nuanced discussion of the role various forms of human imagination have played in the construction of modernism and its successors. This book itself constitutes an important step toward a redeemed imagination and a full, moral postmodernism.”—Bruce Frohnen, editor of American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia
“In the pantheon of American conservative thinkers, Russell Kirk looms large as a tenacious critic of liberal modernity. In this provocative and illuminating study, Gerald Russello examines the philosophical and moral vision that animated Kirk’s defiant antimodernism. Russello gives us a lucid and perceptive account of Kirk’s carefully crafted traditionalism and of its surprising affinities with much of contemporary postmodernism. In a time of deepening flux across the intellectual landscape, Russello’s volume enlarges our understanding of the complex character of American conservatism.”—George H. Nash, author of The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America since 1945
