This is the most important book on the Catholic Church for a decade. The author, French journalist Frederic Martel, undertook six years of intensive research and interviews to produce this detailed and astonishing account of the hypocrisy and decay inside the modern Catholic Church. The period he covers ranges from the 1960s up until the present day.
Power and Corruption is a detailed and exhaustive description and evaluation of financial, sexual and political misconduct throughout the Catholic Church at a time when new revelations are being uncovered each and every week. This book explores the underlying causes and includes interviews with numerous Cardinals and other individuals, some of whom cannot be named.
Martel reveals financial scandals in the Vatican bank; political collusion with unsavoury regimes, including Castro 's Cuba and Pinochet 's Chile; sexual abuse and hypocrisy over homosexuality. In this explosive account, Martel goes to the heart of corruption in the Catholic Church and inside the Vatican itself.
