Overview


"A profound critique of contemporary mass society, and a vivid and poetic image &mdash not a program, an image &mdash 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 &hellip Kirk was an artist, a visionary, almost a prophet."
&mdash 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."
&mdash The Wall Street Journal

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