"The initial thought in connection with the writing of this volume was to assemble the evidences relating to the political perfidy of the Mormon "prophets," and to make a brief statement of the political incidents in Utah from 1890 to 1909. ...The past fifteen years have been largely devoted to fighting the political encroachments of the prophets on the civil rights of the people. And the remainder of my life, so far as may be practicable, will be devoted to combating the Mormon swamp light on a broader plane than that of its political phase"--pp13 & 15. The author grew up in Utah as a Mormon. He was excommunicated from the church in 1907: "It served me right; I had been an apostate from the day when, in 1871, I first resented the domination of the Mormon priethood in politics."--p.14.
