excelent purchase

Finally, a history book written from a Catholic perspective. Mrs Carroll's books are interesting, informative and give the reader a view of history they will not find in most history books. I enjoyed this book very much.

Loved it!

This is a well written and researched text. It gives a good balance to all the anti-Catholic texts that are in print. I found it easy to read. My student enjoyed the book and increased her love of history. We used the study guide as well.

Really excellent!

This is yet another wonderful surprise from the talented pen of Ann Carroll. The book is an inclusive and well written account of the influence of our Lord and Savior on American history. Although I am priviliged to be degreed in history, it was in this excellent and important book that I really came to understand the important notion of subsidiarity. This concept holds as follows: One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet argues that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be. This principle is a bulwark of limited government and personal freedom. It conflicts with the passion for centralization and bureaucracy characteristic of the Welfare State. Would that our legislative, executive, and judicial servants understood this important concept! Perhaps one day they will. Bravo once again to Mrs. Carroll!

Review from the Publisher

Great Catholic high school history. Gives the role of the Catholic Church in American history. Starts with the earliest explorers and concludes with the 1990's. Covers American history in a fast-paced, thorough, interesting manner. Scores of amazing insights. Makes history really come alive. Great for students; stimulating and informative reading for adults also. U.S. and Central and South American history beautifully woven together. Each era gets its own in-depth coverage. Gives a great sense of American history.

Catholic History made Readable and Informative

Well worth its price, this book covers the history of the Catholic Church in America in great detail. It combines interesting stories with the basic facts. With a good index, I need no other book to study American Church History.
