Friends of the Library Lecture

Rod Decker analyzes Utah’s early history from the fight for statehood to the evolution of Utah voters from Democrats to Republicans. In his book, Utah Politics (Signature Books, 2019) Decker examines the beginnings of the state’s roots as a communal theocracy and examines how Mormon morality has influenced and shaped conflicts on local and federal levels.
