    Praise for John Ireland and the American Catholic Church: 

    "This long-needed biography is gracefully written and meticulously researched in Roman archives untapped by previous biographers. It is a major contribution to our understanding of Catholicism during a transitional period that no student of American church history can afford to miss."--Western Historical Quarterly
