Catholics and Politics in Twentieth-Century San Francisco
How did Catholic religious activism shape the language and outcome of San Francisco's debates about the common good? History professor William Issel will discuss the complex ways that the San Francisco Book coverCatholic Church and its lay men and women developed relationships with local businesses, unions, other community groups, and city government, and mobilized on this faith-based vision of the public interest. His latest book, Church and State in the City, will surprise some who think of San Francisco as the most secular city in America.  A book sale and signing will follow the talk.

Issel is Professor of History Emeritus at San Francisco State University and Visiting Professor of History at Mills College. He is the author of For Both Cross and Flag: Catholic Action, Anti-Catholicism, and National Security Politics in World War II San Francisco (Temple) and Social Change in the United States 1945-1983. He is the coauthor of San Francisco, 1865-1932: Politics, Power, and Urban Development, and coeditor and contributor to American Labor and the Cold War: Grassroots Politics and Postwar Political Culture.
