America and the Vatican - Midwest Book Review

March 7, 2011 — Print this Page

Foreign Service veteran Robert F. Illing presents America and the Vatican: Trading Information After WW II, a history of the relationship between a mission founded by the United States and the Vatican from fifteen years after WW II onward. Illing, a non-Catholic, served as the charge d’affaires of the small American mission; he draws upon personal experience, historical anecdotes, portions of the Vatican’s Secret Archives, and more to present a well-rounded viewpoint. Of particular interest is Illing’s insight into the Vatican’s financial workings, and its logistic nature as a city-state political entity, separate from its role as the center of the Roman Catholic Church. America and the Vatican offers a wealth of food for thought, and is highly recommended for history and international studies shelves.
