The Spring 2012 edition of The City is here! It includes several pieces applying the lessons of great figures of history to the challenges – philosophical, political, and international – of the day.
Louis Markos writes on Saint Augustine, Paul D. Miller on Alexis de Tocqueville, and Paul Bonicelli on Andrew Jackson. We also have an extensive interview with author Mary Eberstadt on the Sexual Revolution and its ramifications, a sure to be conversation-starting piece from Hillsdale Professor Paul Rahe on conscience and Catholicism, and a reminiscence from Tim Goeglein on his friendship with Russell Kirk. Our reviews section includes a must-read survey from Ryan T. Anderson on the debate over the morality of democratic capitalism, Aaron Belz on Wendell Berry, Burwell Stark on Teddy Roosevelt and football, and Micah Mattix on The Confederacy of Dunces. As always, Hunter Baker’s Republic of Letters features insight and reactions to the debates of the times, and John Poch provides our poetry this issue.
