    In 2002 the No Child Left Behind Act rocked America's schools with new initiatives for results-based accountability.

The Education... more...

  • The Clergy Sexual Abuse Crisisby Paul R. Dokecki

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 16.95

    The story of sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests has sent shock waves around the nation and will not fade from consciousness or the news. We ask, "How could this happen?"

  • Catholics and Politicsby Kristin E. Heyer; Mark J. Rozell; Michael A. Genovese

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 29.95

    Catholic political identity and engagement defy categorization. The complexities of political realities and the human nature of such institutions as church and government often produce a more fractured reality than the pure unity depicted in doctrine.
