Description
Over 800 entries describe the names, natures, and purposes of secret societies throughout history and around the world. The introduction overviews the evolution of secret societies from their ancient roots, typologies, specialization, schisms and splinter groups, how groups often form around a charismatic personality, and why memberships are now declining. The bibliographical references are not entry-specific. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
