to be an "improperly enforced divorce." The result is that battered wives in Israeli society are generally in a difficult situation. The last two articles in this part are S. Morell's "Profile of a Jurist: Joseph Ibn Lev's Rulings Regarding Agunot" (pp. 171-204) and R. K. Ryan's "And Then There Was One: An Analysis and Comparison of Polygamy among Jews and Mormons" (pp. 205-231). The latter offers an instructive survey of the history of polygamy in Jewish (including biblical) law and among the Mormons in the second half of the ninteenth century. The survey is followed by a succinct summary of similarities and differences between Jewish and Mormon polygamy laws and practices, the latter claiming to be a restoration of the former.
