About this Episode

Russell Kirk was an early aggregator of conservative thought. He traced conservative intellectual history from Edmund Burke to Kirk's own lifetime. Writing in the 1940s and 1950s, Kirk was nearly alone in his interest in establishing conservatism as a viable political philosophy in America. In this book, he distills the conservative outlook into a concise and readable volume.
