The Encyclopedia covers every facet of American Catholic history: the explorers; the pioneering Spanish, French, and English missionaries; the struggles of the colonial and revolutionary eras; the turbulent and transforming nineteenth century with its waves of immigrants; the industrial revolution; and the challenges and crises of this century, down to our day. Moreover, it traces the roots and charts the growth of Catholicism in each of the fifty states. Above all, it brings us, in hundreds of memorable features, the men and women who gave much and did much to build the Church in America. The great personalities - men and women from each decade and era - are perceptively portrayed. All the major events and movements which united or divided Catholics are cogently covered: the revolution, lay trusteeism, slavery and the Civil War, the waves of immigrants, nativism and bigotry, Americanism, Modernism, the labor movement, the Knights of Columbus, wars, anti-Semitism, the New Deal and Prohibition, anti-Communism, McCarthyism, the women's revolution, civil rights, Vietnam, Humanae vitae, liturgy, capital punishment, and a myriad of other topics.

Examined are issues, movements. demographics, and history and wars in relation to American Catholics. Issues often neglected by the church are treated: the growing voice of American Catholic women and the church's lack of involvement in the issue of slavery. Since so much immigration history is reflected in American Catholichistory, many ethnic groups have their own entries. Biographies abound and many states have their own entries. Added features include primary documents, such as the American Catholic Bishops' Doctrine on Racism".--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999. Comp. by the Reference Sources Committee, RUSA, ALA.lluminates the American Catholic experience through 1,200 signed articles and 300 illustrations, and examines issues, movements. demographics, and history and wars in relation to American Catholics.
