Martha Bradley is assistant professor of history at Brigham Young University.
[Bradley's] masterful treatment of Short Creek will not only become
a standard reference for students of Mormon polygamy, but will also
be appreciated by a larger audience as a much needed lesson on
cross cultural understanding and religious tolerance."—Sunstone
"A careful, humane observer and a sharp, resourceful writer and researcher, Bradley has carved out a chapter of our collective past that many will find disturbing."—The Salt Lake Tribune
"One of the most accurate, insightful and analytical study of the roots and complexities of modern-day fundamentalism. [A] splendid volume. The value of Bradley's book is immeasurable. It illuminates a period of Mormon history largely misunderstood, and provides a heretofore unseen glimpse of yesterday and today's fundamentalist polygamist culture."—The Journal of Arizona History
