An Introduction to Polygamous Culture and Its Principles, Pitfalls, and EthicsAuthored by Hondo Solomon
Foreword by Yadayahu Ben Yisrael
The Polygamist Papers: An Introduction to Polygamous Culture and Its Principles, Pitfalls, and Ethics was drafted to ensure readers a clear and accurate understanding of polygamy's motives and practice in a modern context.
Its concise format is sourced from hundreds of discussions with polygynous men and women-including concubines and mistresses-even adult children raised in polygynous families; several families across the United States that I lived with while constructing the manuscript; and census data from the African, Indian and North American continents.
This pamphlet is the first in a series of works on polygamous family economics published by The Full Court Press. Its focus is on polygynous households consisting of one man and multiple women. The text has several purposes, namely (a) demonstrating how
plural marriage operates on the microeconomic level, (b) highlighting the cross-cultural and international scope of polygamy, © revealing the communitarian ethic inherent within polygynous families, and most importantly, (d) uproots the mythology surrounding both
polygamy and polyandry.
Polygynous family networks provide a grand opportunity to build an economic power base from their respective estates and requires a righteous spirit, sound mind, and a pure heart for success.
