Roots of American Order is a book written by Russell Kirk, originally published in 1974. The book is now published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI Books).

In the book, Kirk traces the basic theories that underpin "American civilization" to ancient Jerusalem and Rome[1] and suggests that the ideas on which modern America has been built have their roots in these ancient civilisations, passed down through Greek, Roman and British civilisations through to the Founding fathers of the United States.[2]
