|Number of pages:||656|
This text takes a look at the life of Pope John Paul II, a man who has become one of the foremost political figures of modern times. It reveals the Pope as a highly controversial figure who was deeply instrumental in bringing about the demise of communism.
Two veteran reporters, American Carl Bernstein (co-author of All the President's Men) and Italian Marco Politi have teamed up to present the case that Pope John Paul II worked closely with American political figures to cause the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. Their conclusions are controversial, but His Holiness provides an insightful look at the connections between governments, the Catholic Church and the Solidarity movement in the Pope's native Poland.
