Based on Levenda's research into Mormonism, Freemasonry and esoteric societies over the past thirty years, this book is intended for an audience that is curious about Mormonism in light of the fact that at the beginning of 2012 there were two Mormons running for the GOP presidential nomination against two Roman Catholics. There has been much confusion in the media over various Mormon phenomena. This book examines Mormon beliefs and reveals the facts of Mormon ideas and practice, starting with its founder Joseph Smith Jr., who began his religious career with rituals of ceremonial magic and divination, and ended it with Freemasonry, the largest militia in the state of Illinois, a candidacy for US president, and assassination. This is the story of an American religion, and its origins are as strange as its beliefs and practices. What will it mean for America to have elected a Mormon as president? What can America expect?

Peter Levenda is a well-known author of many published works on esoteric subjects. His Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi Involvement with the Occult bears a foreword by Norman Mailer and has been translated into six foreign languages. Stairway to Heaven: Chinese Alchemists, Jewish Kabbalists and the Art of Spiritual Transformation was published by Continuum in 2008 and spent three months at the top of amazon.com’s Kabbalah list. This was followed by The Secret Temple: Masons, Mysteries and the Founding of America (Continuum 2009). In addition, he is the author of the three volume study of the influence of esoterica on American politics, Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft, which bears forewords by Jim Hougan, Dick Russell, and Paul Krassner. His latest books are Tantric Temples: Eros and Magic in Java in 2011 and Ratline: Soviet Spies,Nazi Priests and the Disappearance of Adolf Hitler coming in March 2012. He has appeared numerous times in documentaries for The History Channel, The Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel, and in TNT’s documentary “The Faces of Evil.” He has also appeared many times on podcasts and on Coast-to-Coast AM radio with George Noory and Ian Punett.
