Editorial Reviews


Professor Brewer nicely combines a nuanced view of several aspects of Roman Catholicism with a sophisticated understanding of U.S party politics and careful, persuasive, data analyses. This fine book will give pause to those who are awaiting a shift to the Republican Party among American Catholics. (Ted G. Jelen, University of Nevada, Las Vegas)

Like the dog that didn't bark, American Catholics have quietly remained close to their political roots despite experiencing massive social change. In this fascinating new book, Mark Brewer demonstrates that Catholics have carved out a distinctive political stance that reflects both their experience and the messages of Catholic Social Doctrine. Relevant No More? calls attention to the importance of a voting bloc that is often overlooked by scholars and activists alike. (Kenneth D. Wald)

Brewer leaves his reader with a call for future studies to find a better way to examine religious worldviews and their impact upon modern electoral behavior. (Elizabeth Pollard-Grayson)

Recommended. (CHOICE)

Catholics are the most hotly contested bloc of the American electorate, and many political analysts dismiss the distinctiveness of their religious worldview. Mark Brewer's careful study makes it clear that the 'Catholic Ethic' is alive and well, and that those who ignore it cannot hope to fully understand the contemporary politics of religion. This is a book that will stimulate theory and research for some time to come. (Clyde Wilcox, Professor of Government, Georgetown University)
