Search - List of Books by Garry Wills

Garry Wills (born May 22, 1934) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning and prolific author, journalist, and historian, specializing in American politics, American political history and ideology and the Roman Catholic Church. Classically trained at a Jesuit high school and two universities, he is proficient in Greek and Latin. He has written nearly 40 books and since 1973 has been a frequent reviewer for the New York Review of Books.

A conservative and early protégé of William F. Buckley, Jr as a young man, Wills became increasingly liberal through the 1960s, driven by his coverage of the civil rights and the anti-Vietnam War movements. Although a practicing Catholic, he has been an excoriating critic of the Vatican and its policies and theology, such as those criticized as part of the Mater si, magistra no challenge.
