Item Description...
"Parish Boundaries" chronicles the history of Catholic parishes in major cities such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York, and Philadelphia, melding their unique place in the urban landscape to the course of twentieth century American race relations. In vivid portraits of parish life, John McGreevy examines the contacts and conflicts between Euro-American Catholics and their African-American neighbors. By tracing the transformation of a church, its people, and the nation, McGreevy illuminates the enormous impact of religious culture on modern American society.
""Parish Boundaries" can take its place in the front ranks of the literature of urban race relations."--Jonathan Dorfman, "Washington Post Book Review"
"A prodigiously researched, gracefully written book distinguished especially by its seamless treatment of social and intellectual history."--Robert Orsi, "American Historical Review"
""Parish Boundaries" will fascinate historians and anyone interested in the historic connection between parish and race."--Ed Marciniak, "Chicago Tribune"
"The history that remains to be written will rest on the firm foundation of Mr. McGreevy's remarkable book."--Richard Wightman Fox, "New York Times Book Review"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
