In this episode, McConnell Center Director Dr. Gary Gregg is joined by Dr. Bradley J. Birzer, Professor of History and Russell Amos Kirk Chair in American Studies at Hillsdale College, for a conversation on Russell Kirk’s The Roots of American Order. The two discuss the McConnell Center’s new book in common project and Kirk’s inspiration for the book.
This season of Vital Remnants uses Russell Kirk’s The Roots of American Order to explore the historical roots from which America has grown. Rather than focusing on one defining moment, episodes explore America’s inheritance from thousands of years of human history grounded in five key cities—Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London, and Philadelphia. Each episode relates to a corresponding chapter and includes a conversation with a guest expert that goes beyond the text.
