The Latter Day Saints: A Study of the Mormons in the Light of Economic Conditions

Framsida
University of Illinois Press, 1994 - 363 sidor
Originally published in 1912 in England, this work by the American journalists Ruth and Reginald Wright Kauffman reflects their belief as Marxists that the Mormon church was a victim of a capitalist soc. Their intention was to summarize the widespread anti-Mormon lit. that appeared in the Amer. press during the late 19th and early 20th cent. They believed that econ. forces were primary in soc. and that capitalism was an unethical system of compulsion and domination. Their exploration of how the true nature of a capitalistic system was revealed in its impact on the history of Mormonism brought an unprecedented perspective to bear on the church.
