The often difficult but always fascinating and colorful experience of Boston Catholics is recounted in this lively history of the Archdiocese of Boston. Thomas H. O'Connor, the dean of Boston historians, traces the remarkable growth and development of the Church over the course of two centuries, from the early days as a missionary dependent of the See of Baltimore, through times of struggle and success, to the current administration of Bernard Cardinal Law.

"O'Connor writes gracefully, has a sharp touch with details and anecdotes, and excels at organization. . . A valuable work. It was needed and it is welcome." --Clark Booth, Boston Globe
"A well-crafted local history that moves beyond institutional growth to capture the spirit of the people in the pews."--Kirkus Reviews
"A balanced and well-written book. . . . It not only helps Boston Catholics to understand their own changing world, but it helps the world to understand them."--America
"O'Connor's Boston Catholics is a marvel and model of craftsmanship, a succinct, fair, and fluid summary of a long and very complicated story. Historians, students, and general readers have every reason to welcome the author's latest, a very good book in every way." --George E. Ryan, The Pilot
