is the President and Publisher of Encounter Books and Editor and Publisher of The New Criterion, a cultural monthly founded in 1982 by the distinguished art critic Hilton Kramer and the pianist Samuel Lipman. He is in addition an art critic for The Spectator and for the National Review, as well as a prolific essayist whose writings frequently concern the relation of contemporary life to the inherited culture of the past. His many books include The Rape of the Masters: How Political Correctness Sabotages Art, The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America, and Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education. It was the publication of Tenured Radicals in 1990 that established Mr Kimball as a trenchant social commentator and as a powerful advocate for the revivification of aesthetic evaluation in the humanities.
