From the Publisher"This excellent book treats an important though neglected subject with care and sophistication. It deserves a place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the history of the Papacy."
David Alvarez, Saint Mary's College of California, The Catholic Historical Review
"Pollard has carried out extensive research for this study and has mined accessible archives in England, Italy, the Vatican, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and the United States. Most important, he secured access to the important diary of Negara, which gave him a vital insight into the financial operations of the papacy under Pius XI and Pius XII. On the basis of his thorough research, he is able to challenge a number of the interpretations of earlier writers on the subject. The book is well organized and well written and is enlivened by flashes of Pollard's droll sense of humor."
The International History Review
"Pollard has written an informed and thoughtful study that constitutes a significant advance over previous secondary scholarship." Business History Review Peter J. Walsh, New York University
