520    Publisher description: A fascinating and enlightening look
       at the world's oldest and most mysterious institution, 
       written by an American journalist with unparalleled 
       knowledge about the Vatican's past and present. The sexual
       abuse scandals that shook American and British Catholicism
       in 2002 brought to light a long-standing cultural gap 
       between the English-speaking Catholic world and the 
       Vatican. In Rome, the crisis was often seen as an attack 
       on the Church mounted by money-hungry lawyers, a hostile 
       press, and liberal activists who used it as a way to turn 
       attention on such concerns as celibacy, women's ordination,
       and lay empowerment. When the Vatican struck down the U.S.
       bishops' draft for handling allegations of sexual abuse, 
       many saw it as an attempt to curb an independent American 
       Catholic church. Yet, as time passed, it became clear that
       the Vatican's well-founded concerns about due process were
       shared by most liberal U.S. bishops and canon lawyers. ALL
       THE POPE'S MEN is a lucid, in-depth guide to the sometimes
       puzzling, often incomprehensible inner workings of the 
       Vatican. It reveals how decisions are made, how papal 
       bureaucrats think, and how careers in the Roman Curia are 
       shaped. It debunks the myths that have fed the distrust 
       and suspicions many English-speaking Catholics harbor 
       about the way the Vatican conducts its business, explains 
       who really wields the power, and offers entertaining 
       profiles of the personalities, historical and present-day,
       who have wielded that power for good and for bad. A 
       thoughtful analysis of the recent sexual abuse crisis 
       sheds light on how the Vatican perceives the Church in the
       United States. Balanced, lively, and filled with Vatican 
       history and lore, ALL THE POPE'S MEN provides the general 
       reader with an authoritative picture of the highly charged
       relationship between the Vatican and the richest, most 
       influential national Catholic church in the world today.
