David Frisk, Resident Fellow of the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI), has published a second book review in Modern Age, a prominent quarterly intellectual journal founded in 1957 by Russell Kirk, author of The Conservative Mind. Modern Age provides a significant forum for debating conservative ideas. In the Winter issue, he reviews Walk Away: When the Political Left Turns Right, edited by Lee Trepanier and Grant Havers, a collection of essays on a variety of notable political thinkers.
“Walk Away merits praise for illustrating so many different modifications of youthful leftism,” Dr. Frisk writes. “It reminds us by its ambiguities, however, that walking away from the left does not necessarily mean turning to the right.”
His other Modern Age book review, of Just Right: A Life in Pursuit of Liberty by Lee Edwards and Skirmishes by Neal Freeman, ran in the Spring 2018 issue. “It’s an honor to be published again in this distinguished journal,” Dr. Frisk said.
