The Church as a Political Factor in Latin America: With Particular Reference to Colombia and Chile
This study examines the critical impact of the Catholic Church system in Latin America with specific regard to concerted attempts in Colombia and Chile to develop organizational capacity for influence and power. The discussion is concerned with three related issues: first, the interests that link Church policies and activities throughout the American; second, the internal state of Church resources; and third, the over-all impact of the Church on the developmental processes of Latin American nations. -- from Preface.
