Format: Hardcover
This is not a warm fuzzy, feel good, faith promoting book. It is a fair, objective, social science aproach to the LDS church.

Format: Hardcover
Mauss does a nice job of illuminating the origins of a trend many of us in the church have noticed in the last few decades. He shows how the right-wing, anti-intellectuals have no greater doctrinal support than others, but how they have seized control of many outlets that make their version of Mormonism seem normative.
