1 Polygamous Families in Contemporary Society

Altman, Irwin & Joseph Ginat & Sterling M. McMurrinGood+, Cambridge University Press, 1996, 

Paperback



Cover has some light edge and corner wear. Some interior markings, in pen, pencil and/or marker. ; Cover has some light edge and corner wear. Some interior markings, in pen, pencil and/or marker. ; In this intriguing book, social psychologist Irwin Altman and anthropologist Joseph Ginat examine husband-wife and wife-wife relationships in contemporary Mormon polygamous families. The authors describe how husbands and wives in plural families cope with their complex lifestyle in various facets of everyday life, including courtship, weddings, honeymoons, adjustments to a new life, living arrangements, and the husband's rotation among wives. Other topics include budget and resource management, psychological attachments to homes, and the social-emotional relationships among family members. This pioneering, comprehensive analysis of life in modern day Mormon polygamous families uses first-hand interviews and observations to describe this unusual family lifestyle. It adds to our understanding of close relationships and complements knowledge on other modern relationship forms, such as single-parent families, blended families, and cohabitating partners. This is important reading for researchers in social psychology, anthropology, and religious studies. Lay readers will also find the subject matter to be fascinating.; 8.98 X 5.83 X 1.18 inches; 532 pages; 0521567319,

Apostles on Trial -  Examining the Membership Trials of Apostles Taylor and Cowley, Briney, Drew
4 Apostles on Trial - Examining the Membership Trials of Apostles Taylor and Cowley

Briney, DrewNew, Hindsight Publications, 2012, Utah

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; Brand new hardcover book! ; Sometime after his membership trial in 1911, Apostle Matthias F. Cowley claimed that he and Apostle John W. Taylor "were no more guilty than those who supposedly took action against us." His claim is worthy of careful Scrutiny - and the answer is suprising. While a few members of the Twelve who disiplined Apostles Taylor and Cowley were completely uninvolved in new plural marriages after the 1890 Manifesto, one married a plural wife in the fall of 1904, another was recently engaged to a potential plural wife (in 1910), at least two others courted potential plural wives after 1890 (one proposed), another approved scores of a new plural marriages, and another assisted Apostle Taylor in marrying about ninety couples, a "good many" of which were new plural marriages (in 1897). However, two of those fellow "guilty" apostles did not attend the trials of Apostles Taylor and Cowley and a third attended in relative silence. Amidst this confusion, Apostle Cowley's ultimately led to a two day stalemate that required an unusual compromise. Outside pressures complicated the trials as well. The Salt Lake Tribune blasted Apostles Taylor and Cowley for being "noctorious" for performing plural marriages for men "who expressed a desire... to defy the law" and called fora constitutional amendment forever banning polygamy in the U.S. With fadcsimilies of original trial correspondence (including betrayal letters), original but heavily annotated trial minutes, original scans of newspaper clippings, charts, biographical vignetts of the apostolic jurors, and a thourghly engaging introduction, Apostles on Trial opens the door to understanding these trials like no publication before it. ; 7" x 9.5"; 274 pages,

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; Brand new softcover book!

; Fundamentalist Mormon polygamy emerged from LDS Church President Wilford Woodruff’s 1890 Manifesto, which ostensibly rescinded the practice of plural marriage among Mormons. This volume explores Mormon fundamentalism from several perspectives. Among the topics considered is the history of mainstream Latter-day Saint polygamy in Mexico, John Taylor’s controversial 1886 revelation implying the irrevocability of polygamy, and the rise of fundamentalist Mormon polygamy in the early twentieth century. Other essays provide carefully crafted portraits of fundamentalist Mormon leaders such as Joseph White Musser, Rulon C. Allred, Rulon T. Jeffs, and Warren S. Jeffs. Also discussed is the 1980s schism between the FLDS church and Centennial Park Community, the 2008 Texas raid on the FLDS YFZ Ranch, and modern media stereotyping of Mormon polygamy. Three essays provide personal perspectives on present-day polygamy: a recollection of growing up within a fundamentalist Mormon community, a reading of D&C 132 from a fundamentalist perspective, and an examination of descendants of early Mormon polygamists who embraced fundamentalism. Other areas of research include the changing style of fundamentalist clothing and hair styles, fundamentalist attitudes and practices affecting African-Americans, and the plural wives of fundamentalist Mormon leaders. The volume concludes with a bibliographical evaluation of relevant literature. In this third volume of The Persistence of Polygamy, Newell G. Bringhurst and Craig L. Foster have assembled seventeen original essays that explore the fascinating history of plural marriage among fundamentalist Mormons—an enduring practice of The Principle.

IN SACRED LONELINESS - The Plural Wives of Joseph Smith, Compton, Todd
8 IN SACRED LONELINESS - The Plural Wives of Joseph Smith

Compton, ToddNew in New Dust Jacket, Signature Books, 2001, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; Beginning in the 1830s, at least thirty-three women married Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism. These were passionate relationships which also had some longevity, except in cases such as that of two young sisters, one of whom was discovered by Joseph's first wife, Emma, in a locked bedroom with the prophet. Emma remained a steadfast opponent of polygamy throughout her life.

The majority of Smith's wives were younger than he, and one-third were between fourteen and twenty years of age. Another third were already married, and some of the husbands served as witnesses at their own wife's polyandrous wedding. In addition, some of the wives hinted that they bore Smith children—most notably Sylvia Sessions's daughter Josephine—although the children carried their stepfather's surname.

For all of Smith's wives, the experience of being secretly married was socially isolating, emotionally draining, and sexually frustrating. Despite the spiritual and temporal benefits, which they acknowledged, they found their faith tested to the limit of its endurance. After Smith's death in 1844, their lives became even more "lonely and desolate." One even joined a convent. The majority were appropriated by Smith's successors, based on the Old Testament law of the Levirate, and had children by them, though they considered these guardianships unsatisfying. Others stayed in the Midwest and remarried, while one moved to California. But all considered their lives unhappy, except for the joy they found in their children and grandchildren. ; 6.25" x 9.25"; 788 pages,

Brand new softcover book! By Mormon Wife and Mother, Helen Mar Whitney. Originally Published by the Juvenile Instructors office, 1884, Plus other Important Discourses & Writings on the subject of Celestial Marriage. ; Brand new softcover book! By Mormon Wife and Mother, Helen Mar Whitney. Originally Published by the Juvenile Instructors office, 1884, Plus other Important Discourses & Writings on the subject of Celestial Marriage. ; As a clinical social worker who has spent countless hours with couples in marital therapy, I have seen firsthand the awful situation that our marriages and thus our homes, our family, & our society is in. It's all about 'me' and only figuratively about 'you.' We have become self-serving to the degree that we cannot see that even our best efforts to serve others have at their core a 'me' attitude. But, although this is the case doesn't mean that it has to be so. There is a way to remove the 'blinders' which limit our vision. The principle is to become humble. And one of the mechanisms for encouraging this humbleness is to consider that an eternal principle of the gospel, and one which is equally as effective for both men and women, is the principle of celestial plural marriage. Found within the pages or this book are one books, four chapters or articles of publication, three discourses, and one political document. The book, "Why We Practice Plural Marriage," by Helen Mar Whitney, was first published in 1884. It is a spirited testimony of why plural marriage is practiced among the Saints of God. The shorted publications included within this book include an article printed in the Millennial Star by Belinda Pratt entitled The Defense of Polygamy. The second short article is by Apostle Orson Pratt entitled Twenty-Seven Rules of Celestial Marriage. The third is a publication by John Taylor title The Origin and Destiny of Woman. The fourth is actually a revelation received by president John Taylor in 1886, and aptly named the 1886 Revelation. There are three discourses herein. The first was given by Joseph F. Smith and titled Plural Marriage is Imperative for Exaltation. The second is a collection of excerpts from talks by John Taylor. The third is a discourse by apostle Parley P. Pratt and entitled Celestial Family Organization. The last section of the book includes the text of an oath which the women in Utah, in the 1800's, were required to sign in order to vote. For the thirst of a strong testimony and increased enlightening o this most interesting of subjects, the contents of this book will help to quench the parched thirsty feeling so often prevalent due to the "watering down" of so many of the hearty doctrines and teachings of years gone by. ; 6" x 9"; 162 pages; WWPPM,

Hardcover



Brand New! ; Brand New! ; Few American religious figures have stirred more passion among adherents and antagonists than Joseph Smith. Born in 1805 and silenced thirty-nine years later by assassins’ bullets, he dictated more than one-hundred revelations, published books of new scripture, built a temple, organized several new cities, and became the proclaimed prophet to tens of thousands during his abbreviated life.Among his many novel teachings and practices, none is more controversial than plural marriage, a restoration of the Old Testament practice that he accepted as part of his divinely appointed mission. Joseph Smith taught his polygamy doctrines only in secret and dictated a revelation in July 1843 authorizing its practice (now LDS D&C 132) that was never published during his lifetime. Although rumors and exposés multiplied, it was not until 1852 that Mormons in Brigham Young’s Utah took a public stand. By then, thousands of Mormons were engaged in the practice that was seen as essential to salvation.Victorian America saw plural marriage as immoral and Joseph Smith as acting on libido. However, the private writings of Nauvoo participants and other polygamy insiders tell another, more complex and nuanced story. Many of these accounts have never been published. Others have been printed sporadically in unrelated publications. Drawing on every known historical account, whether by supporters or opponents, Volumes 1 and 2 take a fresh look at the chronology and development of Mormon polygamy, including the difficult conundrums of the Fannie Alger relationship, polyandry, the “angel with a sword” accounts, Emma Smith’s poignant response, and the possibility of Joseph Smith offspring by his plural wives. Among the most intriguing are the newly available Andrew Jenson papers containing not only the often-quoted statements by surviving plural wives but also Jenson’s own private research, conducted in the late nineteenth century.Telling the story of Joseph Smith’s polygamy from the records of those who knew him best, augmented by those who observed him from a distance, may have produced the most useful view of all. ; Vol. 1; 6.25" x 9.25"; 638 pages; 158958189X,

13 Joseph Smith's Polygamy, Volume 3 - Theology

Hales, Brian C.New in New Dust Jacket, Greg Kofford Books, 2013, Salt Lake City, UT

Hardcover



Brand New! ; Brand New! ; Americans of Joseph Smith’s day, steeped in the stories and prophecies of the King James Bible, certainly knew about plural marriage; but it was a curiosity relegated to the misty past of patriarchs Abraham and Jacob, who never gave reasons for their polygamy. It was long abandoned, Christians understood, by the time Jesus set forth the dominating law of the New Testament. But how did Joseph Smith understand it? Where did it fit in the “restitution of all things” (Acts 3:21) predicted in the New Testament? What part did it play in the global ideology declared by this modern prophet who produced new scripture, new revelation, and new theology?During Joseph Smith’s lifetime, polygamy was taught and practiced in intense secrecy, with the result that he never fully explained its doctrinal underpinnings or systematized its practice. As a result, reconstructing Joseph Smith’s theology of plurality is a task that has seldom been undertaken. Most theological examinations have either focused on its development during Brigham Young’s Utah period, with its need to resist increasing federal legislative and judicial pressures, or the efforts of twentieth-century and contemporary “fundamentalists” who continue to marry a plurality of wives.Volume 3 of this three-volume work builds on the carefully reconstructed history of the development of Mormon polygamy during Joseph Smith’s lifetime, then assembles the doctrinal principles from his recorded addresses, the diary entries of those closely associated with him, and his broader teachings on the related topics of obedience to God’s will, marriage and family relations, and the mechanics of eternal progression, salvation, and exaltation. The revelation he dictated in July 1843 that authorized the practice of eternal and plural marriage receives unprecedented examination and careful interpretation that illuminate this significant document and its underlying doctrines.Attempts to explain the history of Joseph Smith’s polygamy without comprehending the theological principles undergirding its practice will always be incomplete and skewed. This volume, which takes those principles and evidences with the utmost seriousness, has produced the most important explanation of “why” this ancient practice reemerged among the Latter-day Saints on the shores of the Mississippi in the early 1840s. ; Vol. 3; 6.25" x 9.25"; 332 pages; 1589581903,

Paperback



Brand new softcover book!

; Brand new softcover book!

; In the last several years a wealth of information has been published on Joseph Smith's practice of polygamy. For some who were already well aware of this aspect of early Mormon history, the availability of new research and discovered documents has been a wellspring of further insight and knowledge into this topic. For others who are learning of Joseph’s marriages to other women for the first time, these books and online publications (including the LDS Church's recent Gospel Topics essays on the subject) can be both an information overload and a challenge to one's faith.

In this short volume, Brian C. Hales (author of the 3-volume Joseph Smith’s Polygamy set) and Laura H. Hales wade through the murky waters of history to help bring some clarity to this episode of Mormonism’s past, examining both the theological explanations of the practice and the accounts of those who experienced it first hand. As this episode of Mormon history involved more than just Joseph and his first wife Emma, this volume also includes short biographies of the 36 women who were married to the Prophet but whose stories of faith, struggle, and courage have been largely forgotten and ignored over time. While we may never fully understand the details and reasons surrounding this practice, Brian and Laura Hales provide readers with an accessible, forthright, and faithful look into this challenging topic so that we can at least come toward a better understanding.

19 Before the Manifesto - The Life Writings of Mary Lois Walker Morris

Milewski, Melissa Lambert (editor)New in New Dust Jacket, Utah State University Press, 2007, Logan, UT

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; Brand new hardcover book! ; Mary Lois Walker Morris was a Mormon woman who challenged both American ideas about marriage and the U. S. Legal system. Before the Manifesto provides a glimpse into her world as the polygamous wife of a prominent Salt Lake City businessman, during a time of great transition in Utah. This account of her life as a convert, milliner, active community member, mother, and wife begins in England, where her family joined the Mormon church, details her journey across the plains, and describes life in Utah in the 1880s. Her experiences were unusual as, following her first husband's deathbed request, she married his brother as a plural wife in the Old Testament tradition of levirate marriage.

Mary Morris's memoir frames her 1879 to 1887 diary with both reflections on earlier years and passages that parallel entries in the day book, giving readers a better understanding of how she retrospectively saw her life. The thoroughly annotated diary offers the daily experience of a woman who kept a largely self-sufficient household, had a wide social network, ran her own business, wrote poetry, and was intellectually curious. The years of "the Raid" (federal prosecution of polygamists) led Mary and Elias Morris to hide their marriage on "the underground," and her to perjury during Elias's trial for unlawful cohabitation. The book ends with Mary Lois's arrival at the Salt Lake Depot after three years in exile in Mexico with a polygamist colony. ; Life Writings of Frontier Women Series; Vol. 9; 6.25" x 9.25"; 639 pages; 0874216443,

20 In the Whirlpool - The Pre-manifesto Letters of President Wilford Woodruff to the William Atkin Family, 1885-1890

Hardcover



Brand new hardcover book! ; Brand new hardcover book! ; A Latter-day Saints president's personal letters leading up to the end of polygamy

Political and religious turmoil in the late 1800s plagued the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its leaders. As Utah statehood loomed, Congress aggressively moved against Mormons who engaged in polygamy. More than a thousand men were jailed and others were forced into hiding. One of those who went into hiding in 1879 was Wilford Woodruff, who became church president in 1887. Woodruff sought sanctuary with the family of William and Rachel Atkin and others throughout the 1880s. This never-before-published collection of Woodruff's letters to the Atkins, edited by Reid L. Neilson, reveals the church leader's political and spiritual conflicts in the five years leading up to his 1890 Manifesto, which officially disallowed polygamy.

Woodruff's nearly 60 letters reproduced here depict a man "in the midst of a whirlpool." The church leader believed he and his people were being denied the basic American right to practice the religion of their choice, yet he recognized that polygamy was incompatible with American society. The letters also reveal Woodruff's humanity—his longing to be with friends, his sorrow over the loss of his first wife, and his struggle with illness.

Essays by Neilson, Jan Shipps, and Thomas G. Alexander provide context forWoodruff's writing. Neilson discusses the Atkins' family life, Alexander offers a history of plural marriage among Mormons, and Shipps analyzes the impact of the Manifesto on Mormon women and men. Nearly 20 images further flesh out the correspondence and its depiction of Mormon people—who were then, like Woodruff, in the midst of change.; 1.2 x 9 x 6 Inches; 232 pages; 0870623907,
