Maciej Zieba, OPa leading interpreter of the thought of Pope John PaulIItakes readers on an enlightening tour through the Catholic Churchs social teaching on economics and governance. Examining papal pronouncements from the late nineteenth century to the present, Zieba shows that the Church displays a profound understanding of democracy and support for free markets.
