Book Overview
The Sixties was an iconic decade, conjuring images of marked generational conflict and sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, but also of the Second Vatican Council (1962-5), permissive legislation and Britain's counter-culture, as well as the social transformations of a period encompassing ecumenism, the advent of the women's movement and the beginning of the Irish Troubles. Better known as the creator of the BBC television series Captain Pugwash , John Ryan (1921-2009), through his weekly illustrations in the Catholic Herald , offered a topical interrogation of the British Catholic Church's sometimes adaptive, though often inflexible responses to the changes and challenges of the period. This collection of Ryan's cartoons provides a personal portrait of the extraordinary ups and downs of religion in the Sixties-encompassing the machinations of popes and cardinals, the testimony of expert witnesses, runaway priests, radical reformists and lay protest movements.
