              Utah's path to statehood was the most tortuousin U.S. history, due in no small part to theMormon practice of polygamy. Frank J. Cannon,newspaperman, Congressional delegate, and senator,guided Utah toward becoming the forty-fifth state inthe Union in 1896. But when he lost favor w...ith theLDS Church, his contributions fell into obscurity.In the 1880s, Congress dealt with the intransigenceof the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints overpolygamy by enacting punitive new laws. Mormonlobbyists who pleaded for relief in Washington camehome empty-handed before Cannon finally broke thelogjam. He persuaded President Grover Clevelandto appoint judges who would deal mercifully withconvicted polygamists and dissuaded Congressfrom disenfranchising all members by pledgingthat the church would abandon polygamy.But when Utah elected Mormon apostle Reed Smoot to the U.S. Senate in 1903, Cannon condemnedwhat he called the reneging of LDS Church pledges tostay out of politics. He wrote scathing denunciationsof Smoot and Mormon president Joseph F. Smith,co-authored the exposE Under the Prophet in Utah,and spearheaded the National Reform Association'santi-Mormon crusade. Utah's subsequent displeasurewith Cannon ensured that his critical role inits statehood would be buried by omission.

              The Young Turks and the Ottoman Nationalities: Armenians, Greeks, Albanians, Jews, and Arabs, 1908-1918 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The years 1908 to 1918 are frequently viewed as the period when the Ottoman Empire fell into decline, but in this volume Feroz Ahmad argues that the empire was not in decline but instead had come face to face with a widespread process of decolonisation. Its colonies, stimulated b...y the idea of nationalism, sought to liberate themselves, sometimes with the help of the Great Powers of Europe, who in turn saw these rebellions as an opportunity to expand their own empires. While these ethno-nationalist movements have often been described in terms of Ottoman oppressor versus conspiring nationalists, here they are presented as part of a broad historical process. Ahmad holds that nationalism was introduced into the Ottoman Empire during the French Revolution, providing kindling for the struggles that later emerged. Setting the stage with this nineteenth-century background, Ahmad then examines each Ottoman nationality in the wake of the restoration of the Ottoman constitution in 1908. Officially known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), the Young Turks made up a nationalist political party that ruled the Ottoman state from 1908 until the end of World War I. Ahmad illuminates the relationships and conflicts between the Young Turks and the Greek, Armenian, Albanian, Jewish, and Arab ethnic groups during this period. Placing these nationalities in their historical context, he shows their relationships not only to the Young Turks but also to one another - no other single book has attempted to look closely at all of these connections. Clearly organised and written, the book will enlighten not only students and scholars of the era, but also anyone interested in understanding the roots of current-day relations in the Balkans and Middle East.
