This expanded and revised edition of Donal Dorr’s classic Option for the Poor, which focuses on Catholic social teaching on economic inequality, includes five new chapters: the equality and complementarity of women; a critical examination of Pope Benedict’s first encyclical, Deus caritas est; Benedict’s encyclical Caritas in veritate; the follow up to Caritas in veritate, “Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority”; and the issue of ecology as it has been treated in Vatican documents for over half a century.
