This book examines what Mitt Romney's nomination for president means for America, Mormons, and the relationship between politics and religion. The first half of the book introduces Mormonism as a religion and a subculture to provide a foundation for understanding Mitt Romney and the 'Mormon Moment, ' a recent period of Mormons ascending in popular culture. The second half analyzes the interplay between politics and religion in the 2012 presidential election. Particular focus is given to the approach of the LDS Church toward American politics and the impact of Romney's faith on his campaign and electoral prospects. Mitt Romney, Mormonism, and the 2012 Election provides an analysis of a poorly understood religious group that is essential to understanding contemporary American politics"--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
