With their origins and rituals shrouded in mystery, many people believe Freemasons are an all-powerful secret sect, covertly manipulating the world. Others simply think Freemasons are a benevolent fraternal society with a penchant for wearing funny hats and indulging in odd initiation ceremonies. Freemasonry: A History examines this fascinating organization throughout history, shedding new light on old myths like their relation to the Knights Templar and their involvement in the American Revolution. Filled with illustrations, photographs and insightful details, this comprehensive book digs deep into this mysterious international brotherhood that includes Sir Isaac Newton, Winston Churchill, George Washington, Buzz Aldrin and Count Basie as members.
