Reviews - What do customers think about Parish Boundaries: The Catholic Encounter with Race in the Twentieth-Century Urban North (Historical Studies of Urban America)?

Enlightening...  May 14, 2006
A very readable history of the Church's complex role in race relations in the 20th century. This is one of the best histories I've read.
 
A splendid book  Apr 26, 2003
This is one of the best books on Roman Catholics in Modern North America that I have encountered.
 
Like most "intellectuals", McGreevy is clueless  Jul 2, 2001
It's perfectly fine for John McGreevy to sit in his ivory tower and pass judgment on those he deems "racist."

What he needs is a reality check....he should take a ride through ANY big city and see how once vital working class neighborhoods have been turned to dangerous slums by his precious "integration."

He needs to be shown the ever-growing lists of all the Catholic churches and schools that have been closed and parishes either merged or phased out of existence...many over 100 years old... because the denizens of these "changed" neighborhoods either can't or won't support them.

Like most of the so-called "intelligenstia", McGreevy fails to see that what is marvelous in theory just does not work in reality.
