Same-Sex Dynamics among Nineteenth-Century Americans

A Mormon Example
Awards and Recognition:

Winner of the Herbert Feis Award from the American Historical Association, 1997.

Winner of the Herbert Feis Award from the American Historical Association and named one of the best religion books of the year by Publishers Weekly, D. Michael Quinn's Same-Sex Dynamics among Nineteenth-Century Americans has elicited critical acclaim as well as controversy. Using Mormonism as a case study of the extent of early America's acceptance of same-sex intimacy, Quinn examines several examples of long-term relationships among Mormon same-sex couples and the environment in which they flourished before the onset of homophobia in the late 1950s.

"Quinn's brilliantly written, path-breaking study of same sex behavior and Mormon Church attitudes is essential reading for all historians of the American West, students of American religion, and serious analysts of homosexuality."--Martin Ridge, Huntington Library

D. Michael Quinn, an independent scholar and freelance writer, is the prizewinning author of books including Early Mormonism and the Magic World View, Mormon Hierarchy: Origins of Power and Mormon Hierarchy: Extensions of Power.
