From Our Editors

The social revolution of the '60s, the exodus from ethnic neighborhoods and parishes, and the Jesuits' own success in preparing their students for mainstream middle class diluted their stern influence on this newly secularized Catholic world. McDonough shows how these phenomena have changed not only American society, but the Jesuits themselves.
