  • From the politics of Glenn Beck to reality television s Big Love and the hit Broadway show The Book of Mormon, Mormons have become a recognizable staple of mainstream popular culture And while most Americans are well aware of the existence of Mormonism and some of the often exaggerated myths about Mormonism the religion s public influence has been sorely understudied.LeFrom the politics of Glenn Beck to reality television s Big Love and the hit Broadway show The Book of Mormon, Mormons have become a recognizable staple of mainstream popular culture And while most Americans are well aware of the existence of Mormonism and some of the often exaggerated myths about Mormonism the religion s public influence has been sorely understudied.Lee Trepanier and Lynita K Newswander move beyond cliched and stereotypical portrayals of Mormonism to unpack the significant and sometimes surprising roles Mormons have played in the building of modern America Moving from popular culture to politics to the Mormon influence in social controversies, LDS in the USA reveals Mormonism to be quintessentially American both firmly rooted in American tradition and free to engage in the public square.Trepanier and Newswander examine the intersection of the tension between the nation s sometimes bizarre understanding of Mormon belief and the suspicious acceptance of the most well known Mormons into the American public identity Readers are consistently challenged to abandon popular perceptions in order to embrace fully the fascinating importance of this American religion.

    A somewhat centralist book on the Mormon religion. It deals more with the cultural aspect of Mormonism as it is known in the public consciousness both in it's vices & virtues. For me, it strongly reminded me that Mormons are very polite, courteous, and respectful people besides their devotion to a religion that's a complete work of fiction. It also puts Mormonism in perspective of being an American religion, and posing it's acceptance contrasted with the American ideals of religious pluralis [...]

    Very interesting look at how mormonism has helped shape American Culture. I was impressed at how fair and for the most part accurate it was.

    I enjoyed the parts of this book that were dealing with Mormon's in the media and politics. I suppose that is what I am interested in. The rest of the book was pretty dry to me.
