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.

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