Nobility & Analogous Traditional Elites in the Allocutions of Pius XII: A Theme Illuminating American Social History Hardcover – Illustrated, Sept. 28 1993
Purchase options and add-ons
Since the eighteenth century, generations have been schooled in utopian principles proclaiming total equality as the guarantor of liberty and justice for all. The egalitarian myth of a classless society was proffered as the unquestionable path down which mankind must travel to reach perfect social harmony. This book does much to shatter these myths and provide a Catholic approach to the way society should be structured as seen by the Popes.

An important textReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 14, 2019
This book by Lineo Correa de Olivera is a unique and interesting social history from a truly Catholic perspective. Based on the Writings of Pope Pius XII.

A book to be read. A must !Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 21, 2013
In general, a great book. Some chapters are dedicated to the specific case of America, seen somehow in the distance to an european. Food for thought, however, when it comes to the crunch: The allocution on the matter of different popes of ( relatively ) recent times. An intelectual weapon to fight against the godess of the 20th and 21st centuries: egalitarism asd well as a good argument in favour of an organic, structured society.

Excellent textbook on leadership in societyReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 26, 2010
Groundbreaking research and scholarship on a range of issues facing our current sociology. Generously illustrated and abundantly footnoted, this tome is an excellent teaching tool. Half the book is the application of the thesis of elitism in America, from the Thirteen Colonies to the present day. Delightful to find a history that is both erudite and interesting.
