Description : Excerpt from Records of the American Catholic Historical Society of Philadelphia, Vol. 12 Church in America, and of its distinguished men and women, ecclesiastical and lay, religious and secular, result in the elucidation of truth and the correction of error, we Shall have done a work not less important, perhaps even more so, than that of the noble organizations who visit the widow and the orphan, who alleviate the miseries of the prisons, and who watch by the bedside of the Sick or minister to the dying on the battle-field. If we can build up a great library of works of original reference, we Shall aid the teachers whose explanations of the truth of the religion in which all these good men and women find their incentive are so powerful; and aiding these we aid every good effect that follows from their efforts. We have taken for our field American Catholic History. In taking this we embrace a wide domain; the materials for its truthful recital will be found not alone amidst the archives of our own land, but wherever the records of events are preserved throughout the world. To understand its philosophy, the writer must be familiar not alone with the written words, but his knowledge must extend to racial peculiarities. He must know the proud Spaniard, the tena cious Dutchman, the Frenchman who manifests himself in so many different aspects from the brilliant soldier to the humble missionary priest. The history of the all-conquering Englishman must be his special study; while the aboriginal tribes of the North and the South, from the savage Iroquois to the semicivilized Aztec and Peruvian, pass in review before his keen intelligence.

Description : Groundbreaking analysis of the birth of racism in America. When the first Africans arrived in Virginia in 1619, there were no “white” people there. Nor, according to colonial records, would there be for another sixty years. In this seminal two-volume work, The Invention of the White Race, Theodore W. Allen tells the story of how America’s ruling classes created the category of the “white race” as a means of social control. Since that early invention, white privileges have enforced the myth of racial superiority, and that fact has been central to maintaining ruling-class domination over ordinary working people of all colors throughout American history. Volume I draws lessons from Irish history, comparing British rule in Ireland with the “white” oppression of Native Americans and African Americans. Allen details how Irish immigrants fleeing persecution learned to spread racial oppression in their adoptive country as part of white America. Since publication in the mid-nineties, The Invention of the White Race has become indispensable in debates on the origins of racial oppression in America. In this updated edition, scholar Jeffrey B. Perry provides a new introduction, a short biography of the author and a study guide.

Description : Since the publication in 1896 of Andrew Dickson White's classic History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom, no comprehensive history of the subject has appeared in the English language. Although many twentieth-century historians have written on the relationship between Christianity and science, and in the process have called into question many of White's conclusions, the image of warfare lingers in the public mind. To provide an up-to-date alternative, based on the best available scholarship and written in nontechnical language, the editors of this volume have assembled an international group of distinguished historians. In eighteen essays prepared especially for this book, these authors cover the period from the early Christian church to the twentieth century, offering fresh appraisals of such encounters as the trial of Galileo, the formulation of the Newtonian worldview, the coming of Darwinism, and the ongoing controversies over ?scientific creationism.” They explore not only the impact of religion on science, but also the influence of science and religion. This landmark volume promises not only to silence the persistent rumors of war between Christianity and science, but also serve as the point of departure for new explorations of their relationship, Scholars and general readers alike will find it provocative and readable.
