Editorial Reviews

Review

“Anne M. Martínez’s narrative encompasses the interrelation between various forces in motion: the Mexican Revolution and church-state tensions, activism of Mexican Catholics and government agents, initiatives of Bishop Francis Kelley and other U.S. Catholic leaders, responses of U.S. political officials, and intervention by the Vatican. Such a broad international approach sets Catholic Borderlands apart from previous studies and generates the book’s compelling analysis.”—Timothy Matovina, author of Latino Catholicism: Transformation in America’s Largest Church


 
(Timothy Matovina 2014-02-28)

Catholic Borderlands explores U.S. Catholic intellectuals’ response to the Mexican Revolution and its anticlerical campaigns through the career of Father Francis C. Kelley. By documenting the many problems and contradictions of [Kelley’s] campaign for greater U.S. intervention in Mexican affairs, Anne Martínez is able to chart the success (and failure) of religion as a motivator in foreign policy while questioning the degree to which that religion transcends national boundaries and cultures. . . . Martínez spins a captivating and important tale.”—Terry Rugeley, author of Rebellion Now and Forever: Mayas, Hispanics, and Caste War Violence in Yucatán, 1800–1880
(Terry Rugeley 2014-02-28)

Format: Hardcover
An important book - a fascinating look at the historical relationship between religion and nationalism and empire, very broadly construed, in the first half of the twentieth century.
