Editorial Reviews

?Occasionally a book of significance unexpectedly arrives on the scene. Such is Au's work. Anyone who wishes to understand the contemporary debate within the American Catholic Church on the morality of nuclear war must go no further than this superb book. Au distinguishes four positions in the American Catholic debate on war and peace according to their perspective on American society and the Church's relationship to that society. He contends that the issue of war has been closely related to the issue of culture. The question of the compatibility of Catholicism and Americanism has divided the antagonists in the debate.... Au lucidly presents the positions in this debate, grounding each in history and relating each to the wider context of Catholic thought. This is critical scholarship at its finest.?-Choice
