Paul Gottfried's New Book on Leo Strauss

Paul Gottfried has long been a cantankerous critic of Leo Strauss'. He has a new book coming out, published by Cambridge, on Strauss and his disciples. Though a bit crankish in his opinions, Dr. Gottfried has solid academic bona fides, and, in my opinion, always something interesting to say.

You can read him write about his new book here.

David Gordon, mentioned often in the essay, is an acquaintance of mine from the Leo Strauss Yahoo list. A great gentleman, and anything you read from him at is exc.

I've loved the articles by Mises.
