MEDIA REVIEWS

"O'Donoghue's authoritative work casts a welcome light on the shadowy world of Catholic teaching brothers on three continents and explains for the first time how they were recruited and trained. Fair and balanced in its appraisal, it makes a unique and original contribution to the scholarship on the history of education." - Brian Titley, professor of education, The University of Lethbridge

"This is an excellent work of scholarship in a very important and greatly neglected field. It should be read by everyone interested in the history of religion and in faith-based schooling. It is also most instructive for those interested in current educational practice, including in teacher preparation." - Tania Aspland, professor of education at The University of Adelaide and president of the Australian Teacher Education Association

"This book provides a major advance in the history of Catholic education and in the history of religion more broadly. It will be of special interest to academics and students of social and cultural history. It also makes a significant contribution to the history of gender and masculinities." - Dr. Judith Harford, School of Education, University College Dublin

"Catholic Teaching Brothers paints a familiar portrait of the order, yet the author is not afraid to make critical statements . . . This book provides compelling insight into the brothers." - Conscience
