Item Description...
This is a comprehensive account of how the anti-Catholicism of the early 20th century was vigorously countered by the Knights of Columbus's "Fourth Degree." In this study, Christopher Kauffman presents the story of the widespread attack upon Catholics' loyalty to the nation, and the explicit rendering of Catholic patriotism that arose in response to it. In competition with organizations which fostered historical memories exclusive of Catholics and immigrants, and which frequently portrayed the Knights of Columbus in the vanguard of "Vatican Imperialism" in the United States, the Fourth Degree, Patriotism, was founded to assert a distinctively Catholic historical memory. Such symbols of "republicanism" as "the little red school house," were regarded by these anti-Catholic groups as emblematic of the necessary training for citizenship, as opposed to the "Vatican dominated" parochial schools with their alleged conspiracy against national institutions and the democratic spirit.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A fascinating . . .   Mar 14, 2008
. . . if occasionally a bit dry at times, look at the history and growth of the 4th Degree in the Knights of Columbus.

In this book, the author provides a history of the 4th Degree, demonstrating along the way the incredible anti-Catholic nativism which was rife in American politics and society during the late 19th through mid 20th centuries.

During this time, the Knights demonstrated their patriotism (which, as Catholics, was constantly being called into question) by publishing, by arranging speaking tours, and by the "KC Huts" which provided hospitality and respite in the battlefields of Europe during the 1st World War. (Everyone welcome, everything free)! Space is also devoted to the 1928 presidential campaign, in which the Catholicism of Al Smith became a major campaign issue.

I did tend to get lost in one or two places, as the history moved into more recent times, getting bogged down with various names, roles, and offices with which I was unfamiliar. I also felt that the book ended rather abruptly.

Overall, though, I highly recommend this book for all 4th Degree Knights -- and for brother Knights considering the 4th Degree.

Proud 4th Degree Knight of Columbus
A well documented history  Jan 10, 2007
This book was originally lent to me by a brother Knight as I contemplated joining the 4th degree of the Knights of Columbus. It is so well written and annotated, that I had to purchase one for myself. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Knights of Columbus or interested in knowing more about the history of this fine organization.
Most complete work on the subject  May 23, 2001
As a Knight, I have read many works on the subject, but this is the most succinct and complete. Though these two compliments may seem to be at odds with each other, I find that none of the salient points from other books have been omitted, making this the book of choice when time is at a premium.
