Product Description

•••••

From the earliest days in the New World through the presidential election of 2000, the effect of Catholics on American politics has followed a peculiar arc. In Colonial America, Catholics were often deprived of partaking in the process; but in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Catholic bloc was accepted as a swing vote that determined the outcome of numerous elections; and today Catholics are either so assimilated or divided that as a group their impact is declining.

George J. Marlin traces the political and electoral history of American Catholics from the time of Lord Baltimore and the founding of Maryland to the election of George W. Bush. It is an inspiring story of ethnic Catholics who arrived on America’s shores with only the clothes on their back, worked through their parishes and neighborhoods to overcome nativist prejudice, and became a significant voice in local, state, and national political affairs.
