Mormon America portrays Mormons in a way most Mormons will find appealing (if very revealing). NonMormons will be fascinated by Mormons' influence, plans, and way to success. In this first thorough treatment of Mormonism in over 20 years, the Ostlings reveal fascinating new information on the Mormons' vast economic wealth and power, secret ceremonies, dissenters and defectors, and much more. This updated and revised paperback edition will include major highlights, including the presidential run of Mitt Romney, the first major Mormon candidate running for president, and the likely death of president/prophet Hinckley (97), and its effects upon the Mormon community.
