9780312564995: When Men Become Gods: Mormon Polygamist Warren Jeffs, His Cult of Fear, and the Women Who Fought Back

As the leader of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, a group based in Utah and Texas, Warren Jeffs held sway over thousands of followers for nearly a decade. In addition to pressuring girls into polygamous marriages with older men, Jeffs reputedly took scores of wives, many of whom were his father's widows. Television, radio, and newspapers were shunned, creating a hidden community where polygamy was prized above all else. In 2007, after a two-year manhunt, Jeffs' reign was forcefully ended. He was convicted of rape as an accomplice for his role in arranging the marriage of a 14-year-old girl and her 19-year-old first cousin. In "When Men Become Gods", Singular traces Jeffs' rise to power and the concerted effort that led to his downfall. The book offers new revelations into a nearly impenetrable enclave, granting a rare glimpse into a tradition that's almost a century old, but that has only now been exposed.

Descrizione libro St. Martin's Griffin. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 320 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.Features an all-new chapter for this editionNew York Times bestselling author Stephen Singular provides an inside look at the Mormon polygamist sect that made headlines in 2008 for coercing young girls into marriage, and the story of their ruthless leader, Warren Jeffs. As the self-proclaimed prophet of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, Warren Jeffs held sway over thousands of followers for nearly a decade. His rule was utterly tyrannical. In addition to coercing young girls into marriages with older men, Jeffs reputedly took scores of wives, many of whom were his fathers widows. But in 2007, after landing on the F. B. I. s Ten Most Wanted List, Jeffss reign was forcefully ended. He would be imprisoned for committing rape as an accomplice. In When Men Become Gods, Edgar Awardnominee Stephen Singular traces Jeffss rise to power and the concerted effort that led to his downfall. Newly updated, it describes the controversial 2008 raid on Jeffss Texas compound and the fate of the 439 children taken from the sect. It offers readers a rare glimpse into a tradition thats almost a century old, but has only now been exposed. This item ships from multiple locations.
