Brigham Young University Studies.  Provo, Utah, 2013.  Softbound, 190 pages.

In BYU Studies Quarterly 52:1, Jeffrey Walker gives a history of habeas corpus law in the United States and Joseph Smith's use of that law to defend himself against those who sought his imprisonment. Thomas Griffiths discusses how true disciples of Christ can effectively participate in politics by keep priorities straight and respecting opposing views. Lisa Tait shows that in 1890s Utah, Mormon women wrote fiction with a distinctive style called Home Literature that combined romance plots with didactic essays, designed to keep young women strong in the faith as Mormon society went through a major change with the end of polygamy. Scott Partridge tells of the meeting of two relatives, both serving as missionaries in Hawaii in 1854: one a Congregationalist, and one a Mormon, both devoted to their religions. Finally, a recent book on same-gender attraction is the context for a look at how people with same-sex attraction need not necessarily find themselves at odds with Christianity and with Mormonism in particular. This issue also contains several book reviews.
