John T. Noonan: "What Can and Cannot Change"

Take a look at these interestingly titled books, highlighted in red, by John T. Noonan, Notre Dame's choice to replace Mary Ann Glendon on the dais 17 May:

Noonan is the author of numerous books, including “A Church that Can and Cannot Change: The Development of Catholic Moral Teaching,” “Contraception: A History of Its Treatment by Catholic Theologians and Canonists,” “Power to Dissolve: Lawyers and Marriages in the Courts of the Roman Curia,” “Bribes,” “The Lustre of Our Country: The American Experience of Religious Freedom,” and “Narrowing the Nation’s Power: The Supreme Court Sides With the States.” He also has contributed essays, articles and reviews to such magazines and journals as Commonweal, The Tablet, The Wilson Quarterly, National Review, America, and The New York Times Book Review.

This information and more is available at the Notre Dame web site here.

Anybody read either of these and can give us the rundown?

Thank you,
