About the Author
Informative and stimulating, this book will be of value to those new to Catholic social thought and those seeking to refine their understanding of its contemporary prospects. It ought to be in the hands of anyone interested in the revival of liberty and justice amidst the creeping chaos and collectivism of contemporary political society.
