Gerald McKevitt is Ignacio Ellacuria SJ Professor of Jesuit Studies at Santa Clara University. He is author of The University of Santa Clara: A History, 1851-1977 (Stanford University Press, 1979).
"A major study that will shape the next generation of scholarship in Western and religious history." - John McGreevy, America "Brokers of Culture is a wonderful example of mature American Catholic historical scholarship. Always fully informed and scrupulously fair, McKevitt admires his Jesuit subjects but offers well-argued criticism when appropriate. He has a wonderful story, he tells it well, and he has enriched our understanding of American Catholic history." - Theological Studies "[Brokers of Culture] provides detailed accounts of the Jesuit educational initiatives among both Native American and Hispanic populations, and it carefully traces how the Jesuit' missionary work was molded by shifts in U.S. Indian policy. It is a significant contribution to what has been termed the 'new western history' and its commitment to the study of previously neglected or undervalued groups and individuals." - Journal of American History "McKevitt rescues from an undeserved oblivion those who never made it back to their homelands." - California History "This is an essential book for Pacific Northwest historians."
