The Conservative Mind: From Burke to Eliot
I’m giving this five stars just because it’s so comprehensive, and I applaud the detail of the work. But…it’s a lot.
Perhaps read this blog post from Kirk Center:
Ten Conservative Principles
This is the crux of Kirk’s argument. This book is simply a long historical survey of the basis and background for those principles.
It’s a tough read. It assumes a lot of ancillary knowledge about historic people and events. I had to stop reading and research a bunch of stuff in Wikipedia in a futile attempt to keep up.
Still, an admirable work. I shudder to think how long it took to write this.
- I have read this book. According to my records, I completed it on November 30, 2018.
- This book is currently in my home library.
