The Secret Societies Handbook
Just finished reading the The Secret Societies Handbook. Quick read and very informative. I love a good conspiracy theory and this book is choke full of them. From the Assassins to the Triads, any secret society that you can think of is in this small tome.
Each society gets a couple of pages. There is a brief history of each society and then a reason why they are secret. They even do a goodjob of linking the various sects together (Templars to Masons to the Priory of Scion). Probably the only thing that I can say bad about the book is that there are a few groups they mention that I would not agree are Secret Societies (The Unilateral Commission for instance) but to each their own. Great read and very easy to digest. Good starter book if you are interested in this topic, think of it as a primer to conspiracy theories. If you are looking to have your interest piqued… Get a copy now.
