9780820346830: What They Wished for: American Catholics and American Presidents, 1960-2004

"This engaging book chronicles the complex relationship between the Roman Catholic Church in the US and the American presidency from 1960 to 2004. McAndrews (St. Norbert College) focuses on the church's social teachings concerning war and peace, poverty, and the various 'life' issues, such as abortion. . . . McAndrews does a good job of showing how the church was able to inject moral discourse into the public sphere even when it faced dissent among its own members and a concern for political expediency from presidents." --R.P. Cimino, "CHOICE"


"In a time when many of the American hierarchy's attempts to affect policy in this country seem at best feeble and at worst reprehensible, it becomes important for Catholics to remind themselves of their church's profound impact on the development of American policies, and especially on the commander in chief himself. McAndrews' book does just that. Its weight signals its rich scholarship. . . . [H]is treatment of his subject is both consistent and compassionate." --James P. Cahill, "U.S. Catholic" magazine
