Professor Leahy recounts the academic tensions between religious beliefs and intellectual inquiry, and explores the social changes that have affected higher education and American Catholicism throughout this century. He attempts to explain why the significant growth of Catholic colleges and universities was not always matched by concomitant academic esteem in the larger world of American higher education.
