Russell Kirk, Postmodernist?

Gerald Russello’s The Postmodern Imagination of Russell Kirk is out now from the University of Missouri Press.  Don’t let the title dissuade you; Russello’s book isn’t an attempt to make Kirk trendy, it’s a serious look at how Kirk’s thought intersects with such figures as Hans-Georg Gadamer and Jean-Francois Lyotard, as well as others like Bernard Iddings Bell in whose company one is less surprised to find the Sage of Mecosta. I’ll have more to say about it, most likely in a print, in the not-too-distant future.

    Maybe paleos need to call themselves “pre-modernists”. 🙂

    Alternate title: Russell Kirk: The Premo as Pomo.

    (Actually, the book sounds pretty fascinating.)
