"By far the most suitable work of its kind for classroom use."--Lawrence Foster, author of Religion and Sexuality: The Shakers, the Mormons, and the Oneida Community

"Arrington has worked heroically against activists' odds, bureaucracies' skullduggery, and the temptation simply to tire. No one alive can know as much of the Mormon story as he. . . . As the crisis continues, the Arrington-Bitton book will attract more, not less, attention."--Martin E. Marty, editor of The Christian Century
