Piety and Privilege: Catholic Secondary Schooling in Ireland and the Theocratic State, 1922-1967

For centuries, the Catholic Church ran schools around the world, but by the 20th century most countries had moved to a state school system. Piety and Privilege shows Ireland as an exception, with the state financing schools, leaving the Church to promote practices aimed at salvation of souls and at the reproduction of a loyal middle class.
