Secular history of the modern LDS church. Written in the 80s, so a bit dated, but illuminates major developments that underscore the church's subsequent evolution.

As a former Mormon, I thought this book might make me angry. Instead it just made things clear--what is happening in the church, and why. Should be part of the LDS history canon.
