As a Knight, I have read many works on the subject, but this is the most succinct and complete. Though these two compliments may seem to be at odds with each other, I find that none of the salient points from other books have been omitted, making this the book of choice when time is at a premium.

This book was originally lent to me by a brother Knight as I contemplated joining the 4th degree of the Knights of Columbus. It is so well written and annotated, that I had to purchase one for myself. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Knights of Columbus or interested in knowing more about the history of this fine organization.

. . . if occasionally a bit dry at times, look at the history and growth of the 4th Degree in the Knights of Columbus.

In this book, the author provides a history of the 4th Degree, demonstrating along the way the incredible anti-Catholic nativism which was rife in American politics and society during the late 19th through mid 20th centuries.

During this time, the Knights demonstrated their patriotism (which, as Catholics, was constantly being called into question) by publishing, by arranging speaking tours, and by the "KC Huts" which provided hospitality and respite in the battlefields of Europe during the 1st World War. (Everyone welcome, everything free)! Space is also devoted to the 1928 presidential campaign, in which the Catholicism of Al Smith became a major campaign issue.

I did tend to get lost in one or two places, as the history moved into more recent times, getting bogged down with various names, roles, and offices with which I was unfamiliar. I also felt that the book ended rather abruptly.

Overall, though, I highly recommend this book for all 4th Degree Knights -- and for brother Knights considering the 4th Degree.
