Roosevelt and Romanism: Catholics and American Diplomacy, 1937-1945

Synopsis

"Balanced research, clear narration, and fair-minded handling of a delicate subject have gone into this compact, yet broad analysis. From the standpoint of President Roosevelt's political survival and that of his country, the winning over of American Catholics to an interventionist foreign policy was a stark necessity since Catholics were mainly Democrats and isolationist in the 1930s.... Flynn trods the devious path of religious-diplomatic history carefully while passing assessments on institutions and leaders.... The bibliography, but more especially the footnotes, will aid fellow researchers in the field." - Choice
