Catholic-school identity in the United States is here examined in its variegated components by a professor at the Catholic University of America. In an overview of the history of the system, Buetow (Of Singular Benefit: The Story of U.S. Catholic Education) considers such elements as goals, curriculum, atmosphere, staff and students, as well as the underlying foundation of Christian philosophy and theology. Timely, positive ideas for the enhancement of Catholic education, possibilities for change in changing times (e.g. the current fluid definition of "Catholic") are some of the future-facing issues discussed in this comprehensive study that offers insight and guidelines to religious leaders and lay people alike.

Buetow, a professor at Catholic University, explains the unique contributions the Catholic schools make to society. He begins with a discussion of the philosophy involved in Catholic schools. Also treated are arguments for and against Catholic schools; the goals of the schools; the roles of the family and the state; and the integration of religion into the regular school curriculum. Perhaps the best features of the work are the chapters on the atmosphere, the teachers, and the students in Catholic schools. Important reading for those involved or interested in parochial education. Joanne Troutner, Tippecanoe Sch. Corp., Lafayette, Ind.
