The Western Case for Monogamy over Polygamy (Cambridge University Press, 2015), by John Witte, Jr., has been translated into Italian. Urbaniana University Press published the Italian-language volume. Published as part of Cambridge's Law and Christanity series, which Witte edits, the book analyzes the historical claims that polygamy is biblical, natural, and useful alongside modern claims that anti-polygamy laws violate personal and religious freedom. Witte concludes that the Western case against polygamy remains compelling and urges Western nations to hold the line on monogamy.
