Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The first scholarly biography of LaFarge (1880-1963) the foremost American Catholic spokesman on race relations for 30 years. Contends that though he was far ahead of his church in decrying the treatment of blacks, he espoused far too gradualist an approach to ridding the Catholic Church of institutional bias. Blames his staunch clericalism and loyalty to the church, and paternalism that derived from his aristocratic birth and Eurocentric thinking. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
