Review of the hardback: 'An important work of scholarship.' The Universe Review of the hardback: '... a remarkable work of intellectual history.' Political Studies Review Review of the hardback: '... a lively and masterful survey of Jesuit political thought ... Hopfl does an excellent job as an historian ...' The Heythrop Journal Review of the hardback: 'Harro Hopfl's long-awaited book sets itself an ambitious task ... Hopfl's project is to chartacterize the political thinking of the society of Jesus as a whole ... In terms of substantive analysis, Hopfl's is by far the best treatment available in English of the more directly political side of Jesuit writing ... the appearance of such an intelligent, thought-provoking, refreshingly idiosyncratic but still thorough treatment of a neglected subject is enormously to be welcomed.' History of Political Thought Review of the hardback: '... meticulously researched, scholarly work, written with suavity and flair, dealing carefully with much of the huge amount of material which awaits the researcher in this field.'
