    The Sword of Imagination

    by Russell Kirk

    Regular Price: $6.25

    Special Price $3.00

    Out of stock

    From the inside cover: Russell Kirk (1918-1994) was an active participant in the intellectual, social, and political contests in our era. This memoir, written dispassionately in the third person, is a lively account of the literary and political controversies of more than half a century.

    These chapters discuss the climate of opinion, the tribulations, and the prospects of modern culture....This book is as much a chronicle of the confusion and perplexities of the twentieth century as it is an autobiography. Philosophical insights and religious observations abound.

    In style as in substance, this volume by a man of letters will interest a wide audience. Kirk's keen insight into the minds of children, his romantic courtship of a great beauty, his perceptions of human nature, his adventures in dark corners, and more make this book difficult to lay aside.

Clark and Paolucci, both celebrated professors of political science, explore the issues involved.
