Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0773495495, Hardcover)This is an updated reprint of a minor classic in the socio-politics of religion, "The Mormon Corporate Empire". This commercially successful (but scholarly respectable) expos_ blends sociological analysis with investigative journalism and demonstrates: that those who investigate the underbelly of large American religions will not only find "muck" but likely experience derision and even persecution; and that no religion in American society, as a protected institution, can expect or ultimately receive sacrosanct status that exempts it from public accountability. This book provides a factual update on that power as well as the consequences for those who attempt to penetrate its closelyshielded subculture. The LDS Church is not simply another American denomination, and this book shows why.
