Editorial Reviews

National Catholic Reporter
. . . an important book.
Social Science Quarterly
. . . an ambitious book . . . bringing together a fine stable of contributers . . .
Crisis
. . . important volume . . .
Choice
The caliber of scholarship here is consistently high.
Faith and Reason
This book is clearly a must reading for anyone who is interested in reinstating the moral foundations into American economic, legal, political, and social institutions.
Public Justice Report
What this book does is to explain Catholic social thought in a way that compares and contrasts it to liberal individualism and social collectivism . . . Serious students will want to buy this book.
FCS Newsletter
Catholicism, Liberalism and Communitarianism makes a genuine contribution to American political thought . . . Each of the essays would stand alone as exceptionally thoughtful and well written, but in this carefully planned collection they come together to form a coherent and powerful argument for the guidance that Catholic social thought could provide contemporary democracies.
American Political
Kenneth L. Grasso offers a detailed and enlightening exposition of Vatican II's endorsement of constitutional democracy, human rights, and religious freedom.
Re:Generation Quarterly
. . . provocative and highly interesting collection.
Modern Age
. . . a fine introduction to Catholic social thought. This book is an orthodox and constructive treatment of a subject that should interest Catholics and non-Catholics eager to find ways to bring about the cultural renewal of our sickly republic.
Journal of Church and State
The book succeeds admirably.
Journal Of Peace Research
One of the strengths of this volume is that it brings together many of the strongest voices in current religious ethics... It throws light on a variety of issues, and is valuable not least for the way it highlights the quest for peace as a central element in Catholic social thought.
— HS
Clarke E. Cochran
Catholicism, Liberalism, and Communitarianism is a welcome addition to the growing list of titles that revive a vibrant and politically important intellectual tradition.
Robert Booth Fowler
I highly recommend this book for its thoughtful and sometimes acute discussions by leading American Roman Catholic political intellectuals.
CHOICE
The caliber of scholarship here is consistently high.
Mary Ann Glendon
Essential reading for all who seek to nourish contemporary political life from the rich harvest of Catholic social thought.
Ernest L. Fortin
A splendid contribution to the development of Catholic social doctrine in the wake of some of the most remarkable events of our time.
Glenn Tinder
It would be hard to find in any other book such wise and provocative comments on the mortal peril in which our civilization finds itself.
James V. Schall
. . . remarkable in its incisiveness and pertinence . . . contains analyses that are unique and central to the understanding of our public life.
Avery Dulles
As a guide and commentary, this volume performs a valuable service. It successfully makes the case for the serviceability of Catholic social teaching in the contemporary quest for a coherent political philosophy for the American republic.
Fcs Newsletter
Catholicism, Liberalism and Communitarianism makes a genuine contribution to American political thought . . . Each of the essays would stand alone as exceptionally thoughtful and well written, but in this carefully planned collection they come together to form a coherent and powerful argument for the guidance that Catholic social thought could provide contemporary democracies.
Re:Generation Quarterly
. . . provocative and highly interesting collection.
Journal Of Church and State
The book succeeds admirably.
Studies in Christian Ethics, Spring 1998 - N.N. Townsend
. . . A percise, subtle, and compelling critique . . .
Journal Of Peace Research - HS
One of the strengths of this volume is that it brings together many of the strongest voices in current religious ethics... It throws light on a variety of issues, and is valuable not least for the way it highlights the quest for peace as a central element in Catholic social thought.
