Introducing the University Bookman

At long last, it appears that The University Bookman, a quarterly review of books published by the Russell Kirk Center for Cultural Renewal, has made the transition to its online format. Russell Kirk (1918-1994) was one of the great spokesmen for the Western tradition in the twentieth century. His championing of the “Permanent Things” made him a rallying point for millions who saw the dangers of cultural amnesia, and the Kirk Center, run by Kirk’s widow, is dedicated to promoting his message, in part by keeping his works in print.

I’m adding the University Bookman to the Blogroll today. Come to think it, I should make more posts on Kirk; his works need more circulation, particularly among the younger generation.
