Summary "Author of The Conservative Mind, Russell Kirk (1918-1994) was a principal architect of the American intellectual conservative movement. This book takes a closer look at his works on such subjects as law, history, economics, and statesmanship to introduce a new generation of readers to the depth and range of his thought." "By examining Kirk's development of the imagination as a tool of conservative discourse, Russello offers an alternative genealogy for conservative thought that melds its antimodernism with postmodern themes. He has forged a lively and provocative work that provides unusual perspectives on Kirk within the wider context of debate over the future of conservatism in a time of shifting alliances - a book that will be a valuable resource for anyone seeking to understand Kirk or conservative thought."--BOOK JACKET.
