"Graceful and intelligent . . . [this book] reckons with Dorothy Day not just as our lady of the bread lines, but as a far-sighted religious thinker whose ideas are now being debated in such an unlikely quarter as the American Council of Bishops.”-- New York Times


“A magnificent and invaluable examination of the Catholic Worker phenomenon and an unassailable argument for that phenomenon’s indispensability to any discussion of the relationship between the Roman Catholic church and American culture.”-- National Catholic Reporter

“A groundbreaking study, readable and stimulating.”-- Publishers Weekly

“Not only the best study to date of this obscure but important movement but also one of the finest analyses we have of the larger contours of American Catholic social thought in the 20th century.”-- New York Times Book Review
