From the preface to this revised edition:
Since this book first appeared in 1934, the changes in the Latin-American political scene have been frequent and often violent. These events, plus ideological changes, have affected both the legal and active status of the Roman Catholic Church. Much of the discussion, therefore, descriptive of the religious settlement of 1934, is no longer applicable to a changed situation. For this reason, the author acquiesced in the urging of fellow-workers in the vineyard to bring the volume up-to-date, being fully aware of the problems involved in preparing a revision covering a period of thirty years.
