Integrity volume 2

This is the second volume of a multi-volume project to re-publish all of the Integrity issues published from 1946 to 1956. The original editors were Carol Jackson Robinson (1911-2002) and Edward Willock (1916-1960). Dorothy Dohen (1924-1984) succeeded them as editor in 1952.

This volume features the first six issues for 1947. A number of footnotes are included in order to provide more context into what was written at that time - events or people which may not be as readily known in 2020.

The Integrity writers become more focused in their analysis of issues such as: the family, education, social and economic order, fatherhood, Protestantism, and the relationship between the practice of the Faith and its involvement in the governance of society. Such issues were perhaps overlooked at that time by the more mainstream Catholic periodicals, but if the feedback received from the first volume is any indication, Integrity has not lost any of its relevance.
