This volume assesses the impact of Rerum Novarum on the Roman Catholic church and its social and political organisations. Particular attention is focused on reactions in France, Germany, Netherlands, the UK and the USA.

Special papers also deal with Christian democracy and subsidiarity. This significant text on Catholic Social doctrine will appeal to historians of twentieth century religion, to social and political theorists and to those interested in Christian Democracy.
