The history of the Freemasons has been often shrouded in mystery and suspicion. Since 1717, with the establishment of the Grand Lodge in London, the Freemasons have been a power within the nation, withstanding attacks from the Catholic Church, Hitler and public disapproval.Throughout the last three hundred years, the Freemasons have been influential in some of the most important turning points in History. Jasper Ridley explores the role of the society in both the American and French Revolutions and whether Mozart's The Magic Flute was an expose of secret rituals. He reveals that Pushkin, Winston Churchill, Booker T. Washington, Clark Gable, Walter Scott, members of the royal family and at least 16 US Presidents were all members.

About the Author:

Jasper Ridley is a highly acclaimed historian. He is the author of a number of titles including A Brief History of the Tudor Age. He died in 2004.

Review:

Although some of his revelations are surprising and perhaps controversial, his greatest service is in dispelling many of the myths and fears surrounding freemasonry. This work of popular history sheds light on a frequently obscure subject. * Book List *
