about this book

In this fascinating overview of the Church's involvement and response to political revolution, Bokenkotter, author of A Concise History of the Catholic Church, traces the development of social justice in the Church through portraits of 15 revolutionaries of the past 200 years. Each figure profiled was key not only to the revolution itself, but also to shaping or influencing the Church's response to it.
