Liberalism: A Critique of its Basic Principles and Various Forms

Cardinal Billot's treatise on Liberalism, part of a larger work on the Church and her relations with society, appeared a few years before World War I and was translated into English in the early 1920's.

This new translation by Thomas Stork includes an extensive introduction on the trajectory of Liberalism in the United States, and a foreword by Fr. Thomas Crean, O.P.  

"In an age where Liberalism, in one form or another, dominates the world, both inside and outside the Church, spreading confusion from an already diabolically disoriented secular world into the daily life of Catholics themselves, nothing could be more timely than this translation of Cardinal Billot's magisterial expression of why the Church must oppose Liberalism in all its many open and subtle forms." – John Rao (D.Phil., Oxford); Associate Professor of History, St. John's University
