Good introduction to this field,
This review is from: How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization (Paperback)
I find the title rather bombastic and the conclusion very self-applauding but in between there is some good information. Although Woods covers many aspects of history, the book is very readable, with an adequate scaffolding of dates and names for someone new to this field. With it, Woods debunks a lot of (distorted, stubborn, incorrect) myths about the Catholic Church.
Most of the information was not new to me because I had already laboriously aquired it over several years, reading many more detailed books. How I wish I had had this one to start with!
