Mormonism is one of the few homegrown religions in the United States, one that emerged out of the religious fervor of the early nineteenth century. Yet, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have struggled for status and recognition. In this book, W. Paul Reeve explores the ways in which nineteenth century Protestant white America made outsiders out of an inside religious group. Much of what has been written on Mormon otherness centers upon economic, cultural, doctrinal, marital, and political differences that set Mormons apart from mainstream America. Reeve instead looks at how Protestants racialized Mormons, using physical differences in order to define Mormons as non-White to help justify their expulsion from Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois. He analyzes and contextualizes the rhetoric on Mormons as a race with period discussions of the Native American, African American, Oriental, Turk/Islam, and European immigrant races. He also examines how Mormon male, fem …

We can all reel of the names of Japanese companies. But who in the West can identify even a few of Japan’s top politicians or celebrities? Japanese industry may have invaded our living rooms, but the Japanese themselves remain a far-away enigma. Fuelling this mystery are the baffling contrasts that give Japan its tang: tradition, diligence and quiet conformity collide with an inventive, consumer-mad culture, jangling with neon. Japan may be rich, but cheek-to-cheek overcrowding and a weakness for overwork mean that few Western rivals envy the quality of Tokyo life. Materialism has become an escape-valve: yet while we can imagine coveting a Picasso, would you yearn for a massage with gold foil, or for mink door-knob covers? What do the Japanese make of themselves? What do they make of us? Joe Joseph, ex-Tokyo correspondent for “The Times”, finds the answers in this study, in which he reveals a society that has moved so fast that it’s not too sure where it’s going, or why. …
