Modern Polygamy and Mormon Fundamentalism : The Generations After the Manifesto

[2007 John Whitmer Historical Association winner for Best Book]
"Modern Polygamy: The Generations After the Manifesto provides a background for understanding the practice of polygamy by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as the discontinuation of that practice, which occurred in 1904. This book charts new ground by tackling the previously unexamined period of plural marriages between 1904 and 1934. Without authorization from the Church President after 1904, dissenters assumed authority from several sources. But in the 1920s, a man named Lorin Woolley began to promote a new priesthood line of authority that he said could solemnize polygamous unions. By 1934, most modern polygamists had united behind Woolley's teachings and authority claims. Modern Polygamy investigates those assertions and the Mormon fundamentalist organizations that have arisen from them. The Allreds, the FLDS Church in Texas and on the Utah-Arizona border, the Kingstons, the LeBarons, the TLC Church in Manti, Utah, and other splinter groups are all scrutinized. Regardless of one's beliefs regarding Joseph Smith and plural marriage, this historical and doctrinal volume will provide interesting reading and enlightenment. " [Publisher's abstract]
