by Brian Hales
Hardcover, 638 pages*
LDS.org just published a new essay on the origins of polygamy in the LDS Church and Joseph Smith's implementation of the practice. The essay is exceptionally candid and forthright in dealing with the difficult questions surrounding the origins of LDS plural marriage, and routinely cites Brian Hales's groundbreaking research and thorough analysis of the subject, contained in his 3-volume Joseph Smith's Polygamy.
For those interested in Hales's work but who might prefer to engage it in more abbreviated form, Kofford Books is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of a single-volume paperback, summarizing the research of the three volumes, co-authored by Hales and his wife Laura: Joseph Smith and Nauvoo Polygamy: Separating Fact from Fiction.
