Defending Cowboy Culture

Thomas Engeman writes a terrific piece in the latest Claremont Review of Books called "In Defense of Cowboy Culture." It is nothing less than a good review of of how heroism is alive and well in American popular culture. The huge popularity of of heroic movies, westerns, action-adventure films, detective and police dramas, etc., is proof that the cowboy (in his many forms) is "the idealization of democratic virtue, especially of its relentless pursuit of justice."
