Catholicism and the San Francisco Labor Movement, 1896-1921
|Author: ||Gribble, Richard|
This study examines the complicated story of San Francisco labor in the first twenty years of this century, and how Roman Catholic social teaching was applied. It looks specifically at the period of time in which Yorke and Hanna (an Irish immigrant priest and an Archbishop, respectively) were active on labor's behalf.
"Gribble's account of 'a regional expression of an historic nationwide movement' clearly makes the connection between Catholic social thought and its application in the American setting of the urban West. This context, perhaps, is the most important contribution of the work." - The Catholic Historical Review
