Book Description The Catholic University of America Press, United States, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Christopher Dawson (1889-1970) has been widely praised as one of the most important Catholic historians of the twentieth century. Commended for his sophisticated approach to history, Dawson focused much of his writing on the important relationship between religion and culture. This volume is the first edited collection of Dawson's works to appear in several decades. It includes the full text of The Historic Reality of Christian Culture (1960) and features selections from numerous works, including The Making of Europe (1932), The Judgment of the Nations (1943), and Medieval Essays (1959). "Superbly introduced and shrewdly chosen, this selection of hard-to-find Dawson essays is a powerful contribution. It covers all the central themes of this greatest of all historians of Christian cultures."--Michael Novak, American Enterprise Institute "No one was more keenly aware than Christopher Dawson of the need to recover a sense of Western history--and Christianity's centrality to that history--in order to understand the modern world in which we live. Russello's selections from Dawson provide a marvelous introduction to the thought of an unjustly neglected twentieth-century giant. A great book that I hope will lead to the republication of all of Dawson."--Robert Royal, Ethics and Public Policy Center "A profound collection of essays from the vast corpus of Dawson studies. . . . Dawson remains an essential teacher about the content of the modern mind and whence it came. His judgments about man's worldly and transcendent meaning are always on the mark."--James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University Gerald J. Russello, an attorney, served as law clerk to Judge Leonard I. Garth of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit for the 1998-1999 term.

Book Description Catholic University of America Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 262 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.8in.Christopher Dawson (1889-1970) has been widely praised as one of the most important Catholic historians of the twentieth century. Commended by T. S. Eliot, Arnold Toynbee, and many others for his sophisticated approach to history, Dawson integrated a providential vision with traditional historical analysis. Many of his works focused on the important relationship between religion and culture. This volume is the first edited collection of Dawsons works to appear in several decades. It includes the full text of The Historic Reality of Christian Culture (1960) and features selections from numerous works, including The Making of Europe (1932), The Judgment of the Nations (1943), and Medieval Essays (1959). Dawson believed that the modern era challenged traditional ways of living through its denigration of historical memory. He emphasized the need to understand the role religious values had played in the formation of culture, especially Western culture, and their continuing influence in world affairs. He sought to reconnect Europes material wealth and economic power with the fundamental religious values that once had formed the core of European identity. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the development of Dawsons thinking on questions that remain of contemporary importance. It illustrates Dawsons approach in defining Christian culture, its likelihood in the present era, and its adaptability to non-Western and pluralist societies. The collection also provides insight on issues ranging from the new evangelization and the future of modern liberalism to the clash of civilizations that is emerging as the newest challenge in the post-Communist world. Christianity and European Culture will be of interest to students and scholars of history, historiography, theology, and the history of ideas. It is intended also for those interested in Dawson himself, or in twentieth-century Catholic intellectual history. ABOUT THE EDITOR: Gerald J. Russello is an attorney with the firm of Howard, Smith and Levin LLP in New York. PRAISE FOR THE BOOK: Superbly introduced and shrewdly chosen, this selection of hard-to-find Dawson essays is a powerful contribution. It covers all the central themes of this greatest of all historians of Christian cultures. --Michael Novak, American Enterprise InstituteNo one was more keenly aware than Christopher Dawson of the need to recover a sense of Western history-and Christianitys centrality to that history-in order to understand the modern world in which we live. Russellos selections from Dawson provide a marvelous introduction to the thought of an unjustly neglected twentieth-century giant. A great book that I hope will lead to the republication of all of Dawson. --Robert Royal, Ethics and Public Policy Center A profound collection of essays from the vast corpus of Dawson studies. . . . Dawson remains an essential teacher about the content of the modern mind and whence it came. His judgments about mans worldly and transcendent meaning are always on the mark. --James V. Schall, S. J. , Georgetown UniversityThose concerned with the state of liberal education or the interrelationship of culture, education, and religion will find the late Dawsons essays of more than historical importance. . . . -- BooklistFor students of Western culture, Christopher Dawson is an indispensable guide. His opera omnia would number more than twenty-five volumes if brought together in a uniform edition. Absent that, Gerald Russello provides in these selections a valuable collection that can only whet ones appetite for further texts. His introduction to the volume is excellent and in itself worthy of Dawson for its lucidity and vision. -- The Intercollegiate ReviewThe selections well represent Daw This item ships from multiple locations.

Book Description Catholic University of America Press October 1998, 1998. Paper Back. Condition: New. Until his death in 1970, Christopher Dawson was at the forefront of those who were convinced that the relationship between religion and culture must be a fundamental element in doing history. He has had a sort of cult following ever since (many historians since have either cared little about history or little about religion) but his books are scarce, his essays even more scarce. Now we have a selection of carefully-chosen essays and selections from his work from the 1930's through the 1960's. His famous essay, ''The Historic Reality of Christian Culture'' is reprinted here in full, along with others such as ''Europe and the Seven Stages of Western Culture,'' ''The Classical Tradition and Christianity,'' ''The Secularization of Western Culture,'' and ''The Christian View of History.'' Reading Dawson is an exercise in edifying self-education: here's your chance. 262 pp. Seller Inventory # 136557
