“How Democratic Is Christian Democracy?” asked H. Stuart Hughes in COMMENTARY’S May number, in an article discussing Michael Fogarty’s book, Christian Democracy in Western Europe, 1820-1953. Professor Fogarty, who is in the Department of Industrial Relations at the University College of South Wales, here takes issue with Professor Hughes’s views, and the latter, in his reply, elaborates his misgivings about the clerical direction of the Christian Democratic parties. Professor Hughes, who teaches history at Harvard, is a frequent contributor to COMMENTARY. He is the author of Oswald Spengler (1952) and The United States and Italy (1953); Knopf will soon bring out his new book, Consciousness and Society.
