Towards a Society That Serves Its People
The Intellectual Contribution of El Salvador's Murdered Jesuits
John Hassett and Hugh Lacey, Editors

This collection presents a representative sample of the writings of three of the six Jesuits who were slain in El Salvador on November 16, 1989. Although little known in the United States, these men were significant scholars who possessed an original conception of the university. They affirmed in difficult circumstances, the pursuit and teaching of truth as a collaborative, collegial process that transcends international boundaries.
