Product description


Let those who doubt but read Rychlak, follow his exquisitely organized courtroom-like arguments. What Professor Rychlak brings to the forum are facts, not rhetoric, dates, not conjecture, evidence, not slander.... The world owes Ronald Rychlak a debt for bringing the truth to light. --Rabbi Eric A. Silver

In his well-crafted pages ... the portrait that emerges is one of an extraordinary pastor facing extremely vexing circumstances, of a holy man vying against an evil man, of a human being trying to save the lives of other human beings, of a light shining in the darkness. --John Cardinal O Connor (1920-2000) Archbishop of New York (from the Foreword to the first edition)

I have read many books on Pius XII, and this is by far the most dispassionate in laying out the context, relevant facts, accusations, and evidence pro and con. The book is highly engaging because it is filled with so many little-known facts. The research has been prodigious. Yet the presentation is as down-to-earth as it would have to be in a courtroom.... This is a wonderfully realistic book. --Michael Novak --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Rychlak is Mississippi Defense Lawyers Association Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the University of Mississippi, School of Law, where he has been on the faculty since 1987. He is a graduate of Wabash College (BA, 1980, cum laude) and Vanderbilt University (JD, 1983, Order of the Coif). Prior to joining the faculty, Ron practiced law with Jenner & Block in Chicago, and he served as a clerk to Hon. Harry W. Wellford of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Ron is an advisor to the Holy See's delegation to the United Nations, a member of the committee appointed by the Mississippi Supreme Court to revise that state's criminal code, on the editorial board of The Gaming Law Review, and a member of the Mississippi Advisory Committee to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. He also serves as the university's Faculty Athletic Representative to the NCAA/SEC. In 2004, the U.S. State Department sent Ron to Paris to address the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe regarding the importance of free speech on the Internet. In 2005 he was named as an Academic Fellow by the Foundation for the Defense of the Democracies, and he attended an associated program on counter-terrorism in Israel. In 2005 and 2006 he was involved in international diplomatic talks regarding peace in the Middle-East. In 2008, the Archdiocese of Zagreb presented him with a Blessed Cardinal Stepinac medal for his historical work. Ron is the author or co-author of six books, including Real and Demonstrative Evidence: Applications and Theory (1995, 2nd ed., 2003). Lawyers Weekly USA called that book a very valuable resource for lawyers looking to stay on top of their changing world. Crisis magazine called his book, Hitler, the War, and the Pope the magisterial volume on the subject. Ron is a columnist for, and he has been published in Notre Dame Law Review, UCLA Law Review, Boston College Law Review, Environmental Law (Lewis & Clark Law School), The Stanford Environmental Law Journal, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and several other periodicals and journals.
