From colonial missions to the Iraq war, Patrick W. Carey details the rich and varied involvement Roman Catholics have had in American political, cultural, and family life. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the paperback edition of Catholics in America: A History includes a new chapter covering the election of Pope Benedict XVI, ongoing investigation of abuse scandals, and increasing tension between traditional Catholic values and the beliefs of modern lay people. Brief biographical sketches of important Church figures and a chronology of key events make this an accessible and invaluable resource for anyone seeking insight into the history and current status of the Catholic Church in America.
