Golden yellow soft cover. Interior is overall very tight and clean. Several pages of black and white images. ; Carthage Conspiracy deals with the general problem of Mormon/non-Mormon conflict, as well as with the dramatic story of Mormon prophet Joseph Smith, his brother Hyrum, and their alleged assassins. It places the infamous event at the Carthage jail (1846) and the subsequent murder-conspiracy trial in the context of Mormon and American legal history, and deals with the question of achieving justice when crimes are politically motivated and popularly supported.

"This book is a 'must.' "--Jerry Jensen, Dialogue: Journal of Mormon Thought

"One of the best books to appear on Mormon history in years. . . . An illuminating study of authority in a democratic society." --Charles S. Peterson, Journal of American History

"Carthage Conspiracy is a superb work of historical analysis and reconstruction." --David Brion Davis, Times Literary Supplement

"No library with any pretension to a collection on Mormonism, Illinois, American legal history, or the history of religion in America should be without this volume." --Choice
