Internet Book WatchIn this revised and updated edition, Richard Van Wagoner's Mormon Polygamy: A History continues to be a truly informative, totally engaging, candid and comprehensive history of the practice of plural marriage (commonly called polygamy) in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). From its inception under the founding prophet Joseph Smith, Mormon fundamentalist splinter groups continued the practice after the mainstream church abandoned the practice under federal political and military pressures. Mormon Polygamy: A History is an objective, "reader friendly", highly recommended, descriptive study that will be of continuing interest and value to students of polygamy within the framework of Mormon theology, sociology, and church history.
