There continue to be many gracious and heartfelt remembrances penned in memory of Irving Kristol. Here are some additional reminiscences that have appeared since I posted my last round-up Sunday evening.

Be sure to read AEI's Christopher DeMuth on Irving's practical liberalism.

In the Telegraph of London, Irwin Stelzer remembers his friend and touches on the trans-Atlantic dimension to Irving's thought.

David Brooks devoted yesterday's column to an examination of Kristol's "detached attachment."

Leslie Lenkowsky writes on Kristol's substantial contributions to conservative philanthropy.

In the Los Angeles Times, Jonah Goldberg discussed Irving Kristol's clear-thinking, and situated his legacy in the context of other notable conservative intellectuals.

Ron Radosh looked at Kristol and anti-communism.

And Herbert London and Jim Prevor both wrote touching recollections.

And if you are interested in exploring Kristol's thought further, don't miss The Neoconservative Imagination, a collection of essays written by (among others) Nathan Glazer, Norman Podhoretz, and Michael Novak on the occasion of Kristol's seventy-fifth birthday.
