The book is organized in four stages. Part I outlines the variety of domestic and international injustices and seeks to offer a social analysis of the causes of these injustices. Part II offers a theological reflection on the characteristics of the kingdom of God which Christians are urged to seek. Part III reviews Catholic social thought in six main areas: human rights, the family and bioethical issues, economic life, social exclusion, authentic development, and war and peace. Part IV completes the cycle with a consideration of appropriate social action responses to the injustices which the author has identified and analysed. Reviews development of both official and non-official Catholic social thought Draws attention to the need for both a social analysis of the causes of injustice and a theological reflection to underpin social action The emphasis on social analysis is unique to this book Contents Part I.
