✏Defender Book Summary : Defender is the first and only scholarly biography of Daniel H. Wells, one of the important yet historically neglected leaders among the nineteenth-century Mormons—leaders like Heber C. Kimball, George Q. Cannon, and Jedediah M. Grant. An adult convert to the Mormon faith during the Mormons’ Nauvoo period, Wells developed relationships with men at the highest levels of the church hierarchy, emigrated to Utah with the Mormon pioneers, and served in a series of influential posts in both church and state. Wells was known especially as a military leader in both Nauvoo and Utah—he led the territorial militia in four Indian conflicts and a confrontation with the US Army (the Utah War). But he was also the territorial attorney general and obtained title to all the land in Salt Lake City from the federal government during his tenure as the mayor of Salt Lake City. He was Second Counselor to Brigham Young in the LDS Church's First Presidency and twice served as president of the Mormon European mission. Among these and other accomplishments, he ran businesses in lumbering, coal mining, manufacturing, and gas production; developed roads, ferries, railroads, and public buildings; and presided over a family of seven wives and thirty-seven children. Wells witnessed and influenced a wide range of consequential events that shaped the culture, politics, and society of Utah in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Using research from relevant collections, sources in public records, references to Wells in the Joseph Smith papers, other contemporaneous journals and letters, and the writings of Brigham Young, Quentin Thomas Wells has created a serious and significant contribution to Mormon history scholarship.

✏Senator James Murray Mason Book Summary : A slaveholding aristocrat and a powerful politician whose ideas and actions helped to shape the antebellum and Civil War periods, James Murray Mason built a career that encompassed virtually all of the critical events and issues of his day. In the first full-scale biography of Mason, Robert W. Young traces the fascinating life of power politics led by this quintessential representative of the Old South. Through his examination of the conservative causes that Mason consistently championed -- strict Constitutional interpretation, states' rights, and slavery -- Young opens a window onto the early-nineteenth-century southern society in which Mason lived. As Young demonstrates, Mason's rise to a position of political strength and his later humiliating fall from power paralleled the fate of the South. Between 1826 and 1861, Mason became an active member of the Virginia legislature, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. Young shows how thoroughly Mason's southern perspective informed his conduct in office, which included writing the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, chairing the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and leading a Senate investigation into the insurrection at Harpers Ferry. When Virginia seceded, Mason resigned from the Senate and was named diplomatic envoy to England by Jefferson Davis. In recounting Mason's years as a diplomat, Young analyzes the infamous Trent affair, in which Mason and a fellow Confederate official were arrested on the high seas by a Union Navy captain. Young places this crisis, which was ultimately resolved in the Union's favor, within the larger context of diplomatic blunders made by the Confederacy. Finally, in chronicling Mason'sdisappointment in the face of the Confederacy's defeat, Young evokes the enormous sense of loss that accompanied the passing of the Old South's way of life. Written in a lively and engaging style, James Murray Mason offers new insights into the key personalities and political issues of the turbulent Civil War era.
