Gillian Calder (UVic) and Lori G. Beaman (UOttawa) Eds.
Polygamy’s Rights & Wrongs: Perspectives of Harm, Family, and Law
Contents look really interesting – with a strong theme connecting them but quite diverse. They are described in Lori Beaman’s introduction, “Is Polygamy Inherently Harmful?”, which, happily, you can read as a sample, here. I hope your librarian is getting this (they may appreciate an email suggesting it). Great cover design too!
