About the book:

From the cover: "Klaus Hansen has written one of the six or seven historical studies of Mormonism worth reading. The great value of his book lies in its intense concern for the emotional meaning of Mormonism--today as well as in the past. What is this thing called Mormonism and how does it work? What purpose did their racism serve? Taken at face value these questions smack of simple functionalist theory. But Hansen goes beyond sociology. He seems to be personally and emotionally involved with the Mormon religion and seeks answers in primary sources and in everyday rituals and practices, past and present. He has written an excellent in-depth report on a major nineteenth-century phenomenon from the vantage point of 1981" -Mirio S. De Pillis, Reviews in American History. "This is not just another book on Mormonism...It is a perceptive analysis of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints and its relationship to the society in which it was born. Students of American religion will find this not only a creative examination of Mormonism but a helpful introduction to the basic elements of nineteenth-century America." -Bill J. Leonard, Review and Expositor
