Tom Hunt, PhD., fellow to the University of Dayton Center for Catholic Education, has done it again! His twenty-seventh book, Urban Catholic Education: The Best of Times, the Worst of Times, was recently released by Peter Lang International Academic Publishers. Co-edited with David J. O’Brien and Timothy Walch, this book takes a look at the highs and lows of Catholic schools in ten of America’s major cities, from the height of the Vatican II era to recent times.

A sequel to a 2010 work, Urban Catholic Education: Tales of Twelve American Cities, this second volume is a compilation of essays written by ten scholars, many of whom are affiliated with Catholic schools and universities. They address common themes as well as elements that make Catholic education distinctive in each of the following cities: Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Chicago, St. Louis, New Orleans, San Antonio, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
