This collection of mostly original essays by scholars and Catholic
Worker activists provides a systematic, analytical study of the
emergence and nature of pacifism in the largest single denomination
in the United States: Roman Catholicism. The collection underscores
the pivotal role of Dorothy Day's Catholic Worker movement in
challenging the conventional understanding of just-war principles
and the American Catholic Church's identification with uncritical
militarism. Also included are a study of Dorothy Day's
preconversion pacifism, previously unpublished letters from Dorothy
Day to Thomas Merton, Eileen Egan's account of the birth and early
years of Pax, the Catholic Worker-inspired peace organization, and
in-depth coverage of how the contemporary Plowshares movement
emerged from the Catholic Worker movement.
