Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1994 - 363 Seiten
Originally published in 1912 in England, this work by the American journalists Ruth Kauffman and Reginald Wright Kauffman reflects their belief as Marxists that the Mormon church was a victim of a capitalistic society. An introduction by John S. McCormick and John R. Sillito places the book in historical context and provides biographical details about the Kauffmans.
