Daniel Larison wonders whatever became of my promised defense of Viereck. I’ll take a crack at that, and post some thoughts on the Austin Bramwell article that Larison discusses, sometime over the weekend. Meanwhile, TAC duties call: we’re scrambling to put together timely election coverage. By way of a sneak preview, I’ll mention that the books department for next issue contains another long-awaited piece of mine, my review of American Conservatism: An Encyclopedia, plus historian Gregory Schneider on Barry Goldwater and Ralph de Toledano on Bach. It prints tomorrow — subscribers and stores should have it in a week to ten days or so.
