While in the early years of the century Catholics in America were for the most part distrusted outsiders with respect to the dominant culture, by the 1960s the mainstream of American Catholicism was in many ways "the culture’s loudest and most uncritical cheerleader." Mark Massa explores the rich irony in this postwar transition, by examining key figures in American culture in the last century.

From Library Journal:

Massa (church history, Fordham Univ.) makes a major contribution to the study of American Catholicism in the 20th century. This important book examines the transition of American Catholics from immigrant outsiders at the turn of this century through their enthusiastic and virtually uncritical acceptance of American cultural values and attitudes as insiders during the period from 1945 to 1970. Massa effectively points out the rich historical and theological irony underlying the transition as Catholics improved their socioeconomic status and entered the mainstream of American secular life, anticipating Vatican Council II's call for accommodation and acculturation by several decades. Some of the most important and newsworthy events in Catholic life are discussed, and each chapter examines a different theological nuance of a separate event. This is a wonderfully written, highly informative, thought-provoking, and readable book that should be included in every library.?Pius Murray, Pope John XXIII National Seminary, Weston, MA
