Synopsis: Chronicles the life and times of Father Charles Coughlin, the famed ""Radio Priest,"" whose program in the mid 1930s, ""The Hour of Power,"" let him share his controversial oratory with the masses. 10,000 first printing.
Review: "International bankers" was a code description Charles E. Coughlin, a Roman Catholic Priest, used on his radio show; he did not need to say "Jewish international bankers," to make it clear whom he was blaming, not only for the rise of Communism, but for the Depression. Coughlin began his weekly Sunday afternoon sermons in 1926. During his heyday, he received more than 80,000 letters a week. He was an ardent anti-Communist who backed the fascist regimes of both Hitler and Mussolini, but is probably best-remembered for his anti-Semitic tirades. Donald Warren chronicles the rise and fall of the "Father of Hate Radio" and reveals why the Catholic Church was so slow to silence him.

Book Description Free Press, Old Tappan, New Jersey, U.S.A., 1996. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition.. From Publishers Weekly In 1942, with the U.S. at war with a Nazi regime long praised by Father Charles Coughlin of the Shrine of the Little Flower in the Detroit community of Little Oak, Archbishop Mooney, his exasperated superior, finally put an end to the "unpriestly folly." Coughlin's slick radio sermons had already been stopped; now he was warned to cease involvement with the rabble-rousing publication he had founded, Social Justice. To a perturbed President Roosevelt, Mooney apologized: "The arena of politics is no place for one whose ecclesiastical character surrounds him. with a protective consideration he personally could never claim." Yet the silenced saint of the populist Right would retain ties to his church until his death in 1979 at the age of 88. A combination of Huey Long and Joe McCarthy in clerical cassock, with a touch of Goebbels thrown in, Coughlin was the first and most successful radio preacher of the interwar years. His blend of anti-Communism and anti-Semitism, combined with mellifluously menacing anti-government invective, raised millions of dollars from the discontented for Coughlin's various projects. Between 1926 and 1941, more mail arrived for him most weeks than was received at the White House. At his urging, loyal listeners would fire tens of thousands of telegrams to Congress, where he was feared for his ability to mobilize the otherwise inarticulate. His Sunday "Hour of Power" became an uneasily accurate title, intimidating many of his political, business and religious targets. Stifled after Pearl Harbor, he would never regain his clout. Although Warren (The Radical Center: Middle Americans and the Politics of Alienation) has done his homework, he has not done justice to his subject. Sloppily written and whipsawed by bewildering time shifts, the biography evokes a career in bigotry clearly ominous even amid Warren's narrative lapses.
