This chapter treats Roman Catholics in the period between 1900, when the Catholic church had clearly emerged as a major force in American life, and 1960, when the election of John F. Kennedy as president marked a climactic Catholic breakthrough. At the same time, by ranging backward in time through the preceding centuries and with fleeting but telling comments on more recent history, the discussion shows how central the experiences of Roman Catholics have become for recording and, even more, for interpreting American politics.
