I have just been recommended this book. The person who recommended it was a little cryptic, and just told me that all the answers I seek would be found in there. I have looked online, and it's clearly about Vatican II, but there aren't that many good quality reviews and I have a few already to read (including Dominion, which I'm halfway through)..

I know Vatican II is a divisive subject, and I don't wish to cause discord. However, I was wondering whether anybody has read it, and what they think of it. It's late here, so i have just bashed this post out, and not had a great deal of time to do much research on the book, so apologies in advance if I have overlooked anything. I have to get up in 6 hours!

I've heard it is a good analysis of what happened to the Church after Vatican II. I have it on my to-read list, so I have not yet read it.

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4

It is encyclopedic in its organization, and every section is well-crafted to address the subject indicated by the heading. Very well written, and generously footnoted. Very worthwhile!

It is positively reviewed by some who attend Indult type TLMs (but not officially by any NO-affiliated org.), cited in the books from the Most Holy Family Monastery, and it's for sale by the SSPX's Angelus Press. That should tell you something. I have yet to see anyone claiming that the information contained therein isn't true, so I believe it to be a good source of information.
”What happened after the [Second Vatican] Council was something else entirely: in the place of liturgy as the fruit of development came fabricated liturgy. We abandoned the organic, living process of growth and development over centuries, and replaced it – as in a manufacturing process – with a fabrication, a banal on -the-spot product.” -- Cardinal Ratzinger, in the preface to Klaus Gambler's The Reform of the Roman Liturgy: Its Problems and Background

Augustian, TruthWhichIsChrist & I_am_the_Goat - thank you all for your replies. I think this is a book I will be ordering.
