Books, Laws & International Conventions recommended by Stop Polygamy in Canada

Dear All,  I list books, etc., as I read them.  I have several more to list here as soon as I have read them.  I have also reviewed many of them for the blog.  I’m posting this, because it did not transfer from our old site www.stoppolygamyincanada.wordpress.com; and, I’ve had inquiries.  NM
