"The editors bring together a wonderful set of essays on a subject often asserted but rarely examined seriously.... First-rate scholars provide new information on neglected aspects of the Catholic peace movement during World War II, the Cold War, and Vietnam. Others assess the significance of the Catholic wing on the wider peace movement. Presentation of the correspondence of Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton is the frosting on a rich cake of historical writing. A superb book for scholars and general readers interested in religion and public life and in the developing conscience of Americans on matters of war and violence."-David J. O'Brien, Loyola Professor of Roman Catholic Studies College of the Holy CrossReseña del editor:
This collection of mostly original essays by scholars and Catholic Worker activists provides a systematic, analytical study of the emergence and nature of pacifism in the largest single denomination in the United States: Roman Catholicism. The collection underscores the pivotal role of Dorothy Day's Catholic Worker movement in challenging the conventional understanding of just-war principles and the American Catholic Church's identification with uncritical militarism. Also included are a study of Dorothy Day's preconversion pacifism, previously unpublished letters from Dorothy Day to Thomas Merton, Eileen Egan's account of the birth and early years of Pax, the Catholic Worker-inspired peace organization, and in-depth coverage of how the contemporary Plowshares movement emerged from the Catholic Worker movement.
