Political Mormonism From Joseph Smith to Mitt Romney, 1844-2012

Frost, Abraham J.

An analysis into the political development of the Latter-day Saint (Mormon) movement from Joseph Smith until the candidacy of Mitt Romney. The basic inquiry attached to analyzing Political Mormonism is fundamentally twofold: exploring the why of political Mormonism as well as how it came to its current station in America. Both seek to understand the operative function of Mormon political behaviors, while exploring the unique position Mormons hold in the American experiment. By looking at the evolution of normative Mormon political output, we come to understand the important and contemporary role Mormons hold in the American polity.
