Review by David Cloutier forthcoming.


Designed for the college classroom, this text presents the principles of Catho­lic social thought, describes their his­torical development, and includes abridged ex­cerpts of all relevant documents. Each chapter also includes study-discussion questions and reflections from the Catholic tradition.

Ideal for a one-semester textbook or for use in a survey course, this new edition includes ma­terials from the teachings of Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.
