Same-sex dynamics among nineteenth-century Americans : a Mormon example by D. Michael Quinn ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What were same-sex relationships like in America's heartland during the nineteenth century, far from the Bohemian enclaves of New York City and San Francisco? The extraordinary answer - that same-sex intimacy was widely accepted - is found in D. Michael Quinn's Same-Sex Dynamics among Nineteenth-Century Americans, which traces the incidence of and response to same-sex behaviors in the United States to the midtwentieth century. It will be must reading for anyone interested in gay and lesbian issues and the changing concepts of friendship and sexuality. This book will be of special interest to historians, sociologists, anthropologists, religious leaders, psychiatrists, and physicians, as well as to Mormons. A respected scholar of Mormon social history, Quinn demonstrates the extent of early America's acceptance of same-sex intimacy, charting the nation's descent into homophobia by examining Mormonism as a case study of middle America
Early Mormonism and the magic world view by D. Michael Quinn ( Book )
3 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this articulate and insightful book, D. Michael Quinn, a professor of history at Brigham Young University, masterfully reconstructs the world view of an earlier age in America, finding ample evidence for treasure seeking and folk magic in Joseph Smith's formative years. Quinn discovers, for example, that Joseph's world was inhabited by supernatural creatures whose existence could be both symbolic and real. He explains that the involvement of the Joseph Smith family in folk magic was not unusual for the times and is important in attempting to understand how early Mormons may have interpreted developments in their history in ways that differ from modern, twentieth-century perceptions. Quinn's impressive research provides a much-needed background for the environment that produced Mormonism's founding prophet. -- from Book Jacket
