From the dust jacket- "Lyman shows that from the federal government's viewpoint- the two greatest barriers were the Mormon practice of plural marriage and the Church domination of its Latter-day Saint political life. Since the Church had no plans at that time to abandon either practice (and yet still desired statehood), its greatest challenge lay in removing these issues from public and congressional debate. Based on exhaustive research into the Church Archives to which Lyman had substantial access, Political Deliverance reveals in detail just how this was accomplished. (Inventory #: 47776)
