A very useful tool:

The Social Agenda - an online summary in six languages of Catholic social teaching put together by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace which was then headed by late, lamented François-Xavier Nguyên Cardinal Van Thuân.

The Social Agenda is made up of passages from Church teaching assembled by topic. A good place to begin your survey of Catholic Social Teaching - although I would never stop at a survey.

I find that those cd collections of Church teaching up to and including Vatican II are a fabulous way to gather a comprehensive collection of statements on a particular subject. It only takes 60 seconds to find the quotes and a week to read em all!
