Thomas Simpson is an instructor at the prestigious Philips Exeter Academy and has written a couple of great articles on Mormonism and higher education during the second half of the nineteenth century (see here and here), which was based on his dissertation at the University of Virginia. Well, that dissertation is now a book to be published by UNC Press, and from what I hear it’s a great one. Here is the press’s page for it, where you can read more about the project. Anyway, if you pre-order the book through the press right now and use 01DAH40 as a promo code, you can get 40% off. I’ve already done it, and I recommend you do as well. This will be a book for anyone with interest in American religious history.
I did a Q&A with Thomas Simpson over at Juvenile Instructor.
