The latest edition of The City was mailed last week! You’ll be receiving your copy soon if you haven’t already, or you can read it here online.
This edition of The City features a symposium on Ross Douthat’s important new book, Bad Religion, with articles by Susan McWilliams, Owen Strachan, Joseph Knippenberg, and Matthew Lee Anderson, with Ross Douthat himself responding.
Other features include a conversation with Richard Epstein on liberty, the citizen, and the state, Louis Markos on Being a Christian Humanist, and Matthew Milliner on Medieval Lessons for Universities.
In our Books & Culture section Walter Russell Mead writes on Faith and the Elites, Francis J. Beckwith on Religious Freedom, Andrew Walker on Abraham Kuyper, and J. Matthew Boyleston reviews Dana Gioia. As always, Hunter Baker’s Republic of Letters features insight and reactions to the debates of the times, and John Poch and Aaron Belz provide our poetry this issue.
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.
