'Peace and Good' in America: A History of Holy Name Province, Order of Friars Minor, 1850s to the Present. By Joseph M. White. (New York: Holy Name Province. 2004. Published in Association with the Academy of American Franciscan History. Pp. xviii, 522. $45.00.)

Joseph M. White, known for his work on the American diocesan seminaries and on the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, has written a history of the Holy Name Province of the Order of Friars Minor. Commissioned for this project by leaders of the province, he made extensive use of archives in Rome and in the United States.

In the division of properties and missions, the new province received St. Bonaventure College, together with parishes and friaries in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

Although this book was published internally by the Franciscans, bypassing the usual process of scholarly critique, the author acknowledges the assistance of Christopher Kauffman and others in preparing the text.

The book is divided into four parts, plus an epilogue. Part I covers the diverse origins of the men who were to form the new province and concludes with its establishment. …
