An invaluable reference work on one of the twentieth century’s foremost men of letters
In the four decades after Russell Kirk published the landmark work The Conservative Mind (1953), the social philosopher, critic, and historian of ideas produced an incredible abundance of writings—books, essays, articles, columns, reviews, and fiction—and lectured all over the world. This volume provides a complete accounting of Kirk’s oeuvre, capturing the breadth and depth of his achievement.
Russell Kirk: A Bibliography lists his published works, including the many translations of his books and shorter writings. Editor Charles C. Brown has also gathered numerous writings about Kirk that have appeared over the years, both during his lifetime and since. The book concludes with a brief chronology of Kirk’s life and work.
This bibliography is a must for every aficionado of Russell Kirk and the intellectual and political movement he shaped.
What They're Saying...
"The second edition of Kirk’s bibliography is not a minor update; the first edition was published 30 years ago — long before many of his significant later books had been written. The fundamental structure of Brown’s first edition has been retained, including every aspect of Kirk’s writings (and now expanded to include published interviews). The task undertaken by Brown — who serves as archivist of the Kirk Papers — provides a tremendous resource for a careful examination of various aspects of Kirk’s thought…One cannot help but be impressed by the amount of foreign scholarship which is being devoted to Kirk’s writings. It is clear that, far from his direct influence having diminished, his books and articles are living on….For those who have benefited from such study for over a quarter of a century, there is still a great deal of benefit to having this revised edition."
