The history of America cannot be told without the history of religion, the history of American religion cannot be told without the history of Catholicism, and the history of Catholicism in America cannot be told without the history of the Jesuits.

David J. Collins, SJ, an associate professor at Georgetown University, offers a panoramic overview of the Jesuit order in the United States from the colonial era to the present and places it against the backdrop of American religious, cultural, and social history.

He compares the historical relationship of Jesuit activities in America to those in Europe and, by the 20th century, to those around the world as political and religious connections between the U.S. and other countries, especially in Latin America, grow. Collins also covers the papacy's suppression of the Jesuit order and its restoration period, and reflects on its future in light of its past.

Collins’ book The Jesuits in the United States: A Concise History (Georgetown University Press) is available for purchase.
