Communism, Democracy, and Catholic Power by Paul Blanshard, The Beacon Press, Boston, 1951. This is a very interesting study of how similar the Soviet regime under Stalin and the Vatican under Pope Pius XII were run. Its a real eye opener into the inner workings of both governments and of their ability to influence the world. I recommend it for anyone interested in either government. It is not a diatribe against Catholics but against the political desires of the Vatican as well as the worldly desires of the Soviet Union at the height of its success and power.
