Overview This first-ever synthesis of Catholic social teaching on racist, tribalist, and xenophobic ideology includes a wide-ranging collection of documents from around the world.

Part One offers a creative synthesis of research and writing worldwide on the nature of race and racism including insights from philosophers, ethicists, and social thinkers on this problem and its equally pernicious outliers, tribalism and xenophobia. Part Two includes selections and complete texts of papal and conciliar documents, as well as documents from bishops and church bodies in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Oceania. All selections include an introduction and URL where the full text can be found.

Part one is shaped to be the single best book available for courses on racism. Part Two is a collection of both full and partial texts of documents from both papal and conciliar Catholic teaching and from documents on the same subject authored by bishops and church bodies from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Oceania. Each document has a pithy introduction and, whenever they are available an internet address (URL), where the full text and related materials can be found.
