Acerca de


People have always been fascinated by secret societies and never more so than today, when our post-Da Vinci Code imaginations are newly fired up by conspiracy theories and clandestine plots for world domination. But what is the truth about these covert groups? Renowned historian J. M. Roberts brings us an engrossing history of some of the most famous of these fraternities. Critically acclaimed on its original publication, this perennially classic work has been refreshed for the modern market and its widespread interest in the role of such groups as the Freemasons.
Dr. Roberts analyzes the many forms secret societies take, and follows their origins, progression, and power both real and perceived. His intelligent scholarship throws a penetrating light on a murky area of shifting and proliferating alliances between evanescent and shadowy organizations, and plots the legendary careers of many of the conspirators who became the demon kings of revolutionary Europe. It’s a smart, enthralling, and irresistible page-turner!

About the Author:

Professor Roberts was Fellow and Tutor of Merton College, Oxford (1953-1979), and Vice-Chancellor of Southampton University (1979-1985), and then returned to the Wardenship of Merton College until 1994. He held posts in the USA at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, Columbia and the University of South Carolina. In 1996, he was appointed CBE for his services to education and history. When he died on 30 May 2003, he was described as "the leading historical mind of his generation" by The Guardian. He is the author of several highly regarded books, including The Penguin History of Europe and The Penguin History of the Twentieth Century and presented the BBC Television series, The Triumph of the West.
