What I am reading

James Burnham
My reading has been sporadic and restless of late. I jump around from book to book never really getting started. Nothing has really grabbed me and forced me to keep reading. I hope that will change now that I am reading this new book on James Burnham.

Burnham was one of the three intellectuals I worte my thesis on (the other two being George F. Kennan and Walter Lippmann). I really could have used this biography in graduate school. Or if I wasn’t such a dufus I should have written the darn thing myself! Oh well, I will review the book instead.

About the author

Kevin Holtsberry

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season - oh, and watching golf too).
