Volume 18:4 (Summer 1978)

This issue begins with three literary articles: two examining western author Zane Gray's treatment of Mormons in his novels, and one describing the representations of Mormonism in the satirical magazine Puck during the early part of the twentieth century. Historians will be interested in a letter from the first Mormon bishop, Edward Partridge, to his sister Emily Dow. Also included are a sociological study of family size and academic achievement, an economic analysis of the United Order, a discussion of conjectural emendation for the text of the Book of Mormon, and a bibliography of Mormon books newly published the previous year (1977).
