0006380565 216 pages including index. Author's signature and lengthy inscription to a friend upon half-title page, else unmarked. A disturbing, never-before-told story of religion tainted by politics and business, of divided loyalties. Recounts the fate of a controversial policy paper, Ethical Reflections on the Economic Crisis, issued in the early 1980s as a challenge to the government's social priorities. The church's internal fight over this radical manifesto makes for a troubling and fascinating story of palace intrigues, political deals and the uncomfortable overlap between church and state in Canada. Very light wear. Excellent copy.
