Synopsis: This title is the Winner of an Alpha Sigma Nu Book Award. The inability of American society to tolerate the peculiar institutions embraced by Mormons was one of the major events in the religious history of nineteenth-century America. "Zion in the Courts" explores one aspect of this collision between the Mormons and the mainstream: the Mormons' efforts to establish their own court system - one appropriate to the distinctive political, social, and economic practices they envisioned as Zion - and the pressures applied by the federal legal system to bring them to heel. This first paperback edition includes two new introductory pieces in which the authors discuss the Mormon emphasis on settling disputes outside the court, a practice that foreshadows current trends toward arbitration and mediation.
