From the Publisher"Fluhman has successfully captured the dynamic process of nineteenth-century religious otherness by crafting a wonderfully entertaining, illuminating, and concise book."
-Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
"An important work to the growing field of historical treatments of anti-Mormonism . . . I wholeheartedly recommend Fluhman's excellent volume."
-Journal of Mormon History
"The world needs more books like Fluhman's deft account of nineteenth-century anti-Mormon literature and the fascinating American dialogues about religion that anti-Mormonism produced. Interdisciplinarity and historicity thrive simultaneously in "A Peculiar People," and Fluhman's marvelously succinct book as much elevates him as a historian of synoptic breadth as it uplifts his subject."
-Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"General readers interested in American religious history will find this a worthwhile read."
"Recommended. All levels/libraries."
"As Fluhman shows in marvelous detail, Mormonism was the great scandal of American nineteenth-century religion."
-The New Yorker
"A comprehensive history of anti-Mormon thought."
-American Catholic Studies Newsletter
"Few books deserve to be longer. This is one of them. . . . A must-read for anyone seriously interested in the study of American religion."
