The Catholic Church and Soviet Russia, 1917-1939 (Routledge, 2017).

“…Expertly outlines the relationship of the Catholic Church and the Soviet Union during the first two decades of Communist rule over the former Russian Empire, from the Bolshevik revolution to the eve of the Second World War.  This is familiar ground for the author.  Dennis Dunn is the foremost authority on the history of the difficult and complex connections between Russia and Catholicism, and has three previous well-regarded books on the subject to his credit.” Neal Pease, Professor, Dept. of History, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Journal of Church and State (Oxford), Volume 60, Issue 2, 1 May 2018.
