This is an important book about how Catholic Social Teaching could or should adapt to the vastly different cultural and social situations in diverse parts of the world. Though not entirely new, the current processes ofglobalisation have pressed this adaptation urgently. While the book focuses on Catholic social thought, and especially the formally articulated papal stream of commentary, its implications apply equally well to other churches and forms of Christian social thinking in attempting to develop a coherent moral worldview relevant for differing contexts.
