Review quote

A new bibliography and foreword expand this volume and reinforce its importance. "A classic study of an influential American religion... Provides both the specialist in religion and the general reader a thoughtful history of this complex religion." -- Colleen McDannell, University of Utah "A must read for any serious student of this 'peculiar people' and Western history." -- Stanley B. Kimball, Journal of the West "Thoughtful... An objective examination of the church's changing position on political involvement, plural marriage, business relations, administrative reorganization, doctrinal redefinition, missionary work, and education." -- N. J. Bender, Choice "Will be required reading for all historians of Mormonism for some time to come." -- William D. Russell, Journal of American History "This is by far the most important book on this crucial period in LDS history." -- Jan Shipps, author of Mormonism: The Story of a New Religious Tradition "A work of careful and prodigious scholarship." -- Leonard J. Arrington, author of Brigham Young: American Moses "Clearly fills a tremendous void in the history of Mormonism." -- Klaus J. Hansen, author of Mormonism and the American Experience [PROOFED] "A splendid example of Mormon historical scholarship at its best." -- B. Carmon Hardy, Utah Historical Quarterlyshow more
