In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

] About This Issue O ver the years we have featured articles on politics and culture in various issues: four issues on African Americans, three on Hispanics, a two-volume publication on Catholics in a non-Catholic World, two volumes on regionalism , two volumes on Catholics and social reform, and festschrifts for James Hennesey, S.J., Philip Gleason, Jay Dolan, Msgr. George Higgins, and David O’Brien. We are pleased to publish this first issue dedicated to U.S. Catholicism and politics. It is a fine collection of distinctive articles on American Catholicity’s political engagement in ethnic conflicts, in the breakdown of miscegenation, in the struggle against Nazi anti-Semitism, and in the encounter of presidents and popes. On occasion, we publish a symposium review of a significant book related to the theme of an issue. E. J. Dionne’s seminal study, Souled Out, is a perfect fit for this issue symbolized by its subtitle, Reclaiming Faith & Politics after the Religious Right. We are grateful to our contributors. Heath W.
