20 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moving far beyond the realm of traditional "church history," Patrick Allitt here offers a vigorous and erudite survey of the broad canvas of American religion since World War II. Identifying the major trends and telling moments within major denominations and also in less formal religious movements, he asks how these religious groups have shaped, and been shaped by, some of the most important and divisive issues and events of the last half century: the Cold War, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, feminism and the sexual revolution, abortion rights, the antinuclear and environmentalist movements, and many others."--Jacket
A climate of crisis : America in the age of environmentalism by Patrick Allitt( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few issues today excite more passion or alarm than the specter of climate change. In A Climate of Crisis, historian Patrick Allitt shows that our present climate of crisis is far from exceptional. Indeed, the environmental debates of the last half century are defined by exaggeration and fearmongering from all sides, often at the expense of the facts."-- From dust jacket flap
Catholic intellectuals and conservative politics in America, 1950-1985 by Patrick Allitt( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of World War II, conservatism was a negligible element in U.S. politics, but by 1980 it had risen to a dominant position. Patrick Allitt helps explain the remarkable growth of the contemporary conservative movement in the light of Catholic history in the United States. Allitt focuses on the role of individual Catholics against a backdrop of volatile cultural change, showing how such figures as William F. Buckley, Jr., Garry Wills, John T. Noonan, Jr., Michael Novak, John Lukacs, Thomas Molnar, Russell Kirk, Clare Boothe Luce, Ellen Wilson, Charles Rice, and James McFadden forged a potent anti-liberal intellectual tradition. Catholic Intellectuals and Conservative Politics in America, 1950-1985 is much more than a history of conservative Catholics, for it illuminates critical themes in postwar American society. As Allitt narrates the interplay of liberal and conservative politics among Catholics, he unfolds a history both intricate and sweeping. After describing how New Conservatism was shaped in the 1950s by William F. Buckley, Jr., and an older generation of Catholic thinkers including Ross Hoffman and Francis Graham Wilson, Allitt traces the range of Catholic responses to the cataclysmic events of the 1960s: the election of John F. Kennedy, the civil rights movement, the decolonization of Africa, Supreme Court decisions on school prayer, the war in Vietnam, and nuclear arms proliferation. He shows how the transformation of the Church prompted by the Second Vatican Council not only intensified existing divisions among Catholics but also shattered the unity of the Catholic conservative movement. Turning to the 1970s, Allitt chronicles bitter controversies concerning family roles, contraception, abortion, and gay rights. Next, comparing the work of John Lukacs, Thomas Molnar, Garry Wills, and Michael Novak from the 1950s through the 1980s, Allitt demonstrates how individual Catholic conservatives drew different lessons from similar contingencies. He concludes by assessing recent ideological shifts within American Catholicism, using as his test case the conservative resistance to the Catholic Bishops' 1983 Pastoral Letter on Nuclear Weapons. Offering new insight into the subtle interplay between religion and politics, Catholic Intellectuals and Conservative Politics in America, 1950-1985 will be engaging reading for everyone interested in the post-war evolution of American politics and culture
Catholic converts : British and American intellectuals turn to Rome by Patrick Allitt( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the early nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, an impressive group of English-speaking intellectuals converted to Catholicism. Outspoken and gifted, they intended to show the fallacies of religious skeptics and place Catholicism, once again, at the center of Western intellectual life. Allitt explains how, despite the Church's dogmatic style and hierarchical structure, converts working in the areas of history, science, literature, and philosophy maintained that Catholicism was intellectually liberating. British and American converts followed each other's progress closely, visiting each other and sending work back and forth across the Atlantic. The lives of individual converts - such as John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, Thomas Merton, and Dorothy Day - have been well documented, but Patrick Allitt has written the first account of converts' collective impact on Catholic intellectual life
The art of teaching : best practices from a master educator by Patrick Allitt( Visual )

Teaching is more than a job-- it's a responsibility, one of the greatest responsibilities in civilized society. Teachers lay bare the mysteries of the world; train minds to explore, question, investigate, and discover; and ensure that knowledge is not lost or forgotten but passed on to future generations. Teachers shape lives in limitless ways, both inside and outside of the classroom. But teaching is no easy task. It's an art form that requires craft, sensitivity, creativity, and intelligence. Whether the classroom consists of 3 students or 300, it's important to be as effective and successful a teacher as possible, both for the students and for professional and personal growth. This course is designed to help develop and enhance teaching style; provide methods, tools, and advice for handling all manner of teaching scenarios; and help viewers achieve new levels of success as teachers
