Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This major compilation of 340 signed articles, edited and written by over 40 academically credentialed contributors (Hunt teaches education at Univ. of Dayton), charts the development of U.S. Catholic schools, from their 17th century beginning in Louisiana and Florida through today, when there are nearly 8000 Catholic elementary and secondary schools with enrollment of almost 2,500,000 students. Alphabetized entries are generally two pages long and treat such topics as people, organizations, statistics, key documents, and law cases. Some black-and-white photos (no list included) are interspersed throughout, and a substantial bibliography and index complete volume two. A "Guide to Related Topics" enhances access, grouping articles under items such as Curriculum, Governance, Learning Styles and Theories, and Moral Education. Bottom Line While neither school libraries nor pre-school/ kindergarten merit articles in this unique work, and the cover image may be off-putting, coverage overall is comprehensive. Controversial issues are not side-stepped and receive objective treatment. Highly recommended for all libraries but especially those catering to Catholic schools.-Anna M. Donnelly, St. John's Univ., NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
