'Polygamy: The Morman Enigma'
Starting with the arrest of polygamist Warren Jeffs and Mormon Mitt Romney's bid for the U.S. presidency public interest in the practice of Polygamy has soared. It is a practice found in 78% of the world's cultures - but despite its ubiquitous nature, all that people know about it come from the reprehensible abuses of a few and the Mormon faith.
Author E. Keith Howick discusses the legal, political, social, and historical enigma of polygamy in his latest book Polygamy: The Mormon Enigma. His insight allows him to discuss the many facets of polygamy that people don't see, including both abuses and successful practice, the difference between Mormons and Mormon Fundamentalists, and the increasingly popular non-Mormon practice of polygamy. He has been interviewed by Lori & Rich of the ABC Radio Network, Melanie Deveau of CKLW Detroit, Don Lancer of KYW Philadelphia, and many more.
Canada is currently researching the possibility of legalizing or decriminalizing the practice of polygamy. How would your readers, listeners, or viewers react if the basic family lifestyle practiced by Warren Jeffs suddenly became legal in the United States?
Mr. Howick is available for interviews, or you can request a complimentary copy of the book for your review.
