A good friend of Tradition in Action, Michael Saint Amand, suggested that a short work be published to benefit Readers and prepares them for what they will read in the 11-volume Collection on Vatican II by Atila Guimarães. A handbook that would give a first orientation and understanding of the Author's aim in undertaking this massive work.
The initiative came to light in a 90-page booklet. In it Saint Amand poses a series of 45 questions to the Author on what inspired the Collection, the topics it covers, the process of writing it and the problems encountered. It also includes:
- Biographies of the Author and his mentor, Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira;
- A Vocabulary List explaining expressions unfamiliar to the normal reader;
- The words written by Prof. Plinio to mark the beginning and the end of the writing of the Collection.
- Excerpts from book reviews on Volumes of the Collection and comments by readers.
The easy-to-read and eludicating work is only $5 – inexpensive precisely because it is meant to be in the hands of every reader of the Collection as well as a tool to introduce the Collection to a broader public. Get your copy now!
