Overview


Founded in 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was initially perceived as a movement of polygamous, radical zealots; now in parts of the U.S. it has become synonymous with the establishment.

This illustrated edition has been revised and offers a new postscript by the author.
