The Mormon tradition is unfamiliar and mysterious to most Americans outside of the religion, and understandably generates much curiosity. "Mormons in American Politics: From Persecution to Power" provides an intellectual foundation of Mormon development and emergence in politics, comprehensively examining significant issues and developments from historical, theological, cultural, and modern perspectives. The work analyzes diverse, contemporary topics including Mormons in popular culture, Mormon understandings of the Constitution, the Mormon welfare program, Mormon opposition to same-sex marriage, and the global expansion of Mormonism.
