Socialism and Social Reform. Published for the members of the “Volksverein” of Pennsylvania.


Rare study of socialism prepared for the “Volksverein” of Pennsylvania, a Roman Catholic social reform society. The author’s analysis was guided by the “well known book on ‘Socialism’ written by Victor Cathrein, S.J.,” i.e. Viktor Cathrein (1845–1931), the Swiss German moral and legal philosopher and Jesuit priest.

Chapter titles include “Marx’s Materialistic Conception of History,” “The Living Wage,” “A Dozen Reasons Why a Catholic cannot be a Socialist,” and “What is the object of the ‘Volksverein?’”

OCLC returns one copy at Univ. of Kansas.
