Nice copy of Father Dwyer's dissertation, which has become the standard work on the interactions of Mormons and non-Mormons in Utah during the 19th century. According to Saunders" Fr. Dwyer's classic treatise on the Gentile influence between the time of P.E. Conner and the California Volunteers' march into Salt Lake City and the Manifesto. Dwyer's dissertation was one of the first works to address the topic of Mormon/non-Mormon relations in Utah Territory with scholarly capability and anything approaching civility."
