From Above and Below: The Mormon Embrace of Revolution, 1840-1940 (Greg Kofford Books, 2013) tells the story of Mormon commentary on global revolutions from the European revolutions of 1848 to the collapse of Mormon faith in progress in the 1930s when revolutionary communist and fascist regimes exposed themselves as violent and repressive.
“In addition to the responses of Mormon observers, the book is an excellent source on the start, middle, and end of the revolutions themselves,” said Livingston, a professor of history since the college opened. “Well-known revolutions are discussed, like 1848 in Europe, Mexico in 1910, and Russia in 1917, but lesser revolutions come up too, such as those experienced in Bolivia, Argentina, and Peru during the 1930s.”
Livingston’s paperback book is also available as an ebook for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and iDevices.
