More than ever this subject is of acute concern to a world facing serious population problems, and the author has written an important new appendix examining the development of and debates over the doctrine in the past twenty years. Noonan traces the Churchs position from its earliest foundations to the present, and analyzes the conflicts and personal decisions that have affected the theologians teachings on the subject.
