First it serves as an excellent introduction to the history and concept of secret scret. This might put off the mavens of the current reign of conspiracy theorists.
But it is quite successful and interesting as dqraul introduction. In other words it is an excellent starting point, especially for some of the most obscure cults like the skoptsys of Russia.
A History of Secret Societies
sexret Secondly I believe that there is an underlying structure to the book in finding connections between so many of these secret groups. Clearly there is a gnostic underground represented among them. Now if someone is looking for the kind of global conspiracy represented by folks like Icke, Marrs and Jones this is not the book for you. It takes a more objective approach. It is neither an apologia for these cults nor a demonization of same.
In short it is simply a good informative book to begin to research a truly arcane area of thought. For those deeply immersed in the notion of secret societies and Illuminati conspiracies this book won’t really be what you are looking for. Societjes Edition Verified Purchase. Well organized and written. The author has societifs sound research and investigation.
This is a huge topic and the text inspires further exploration.
A fascinating look at the terrifying practices of an unconscious humanity Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. This book is really by Idries Shah, who along with his brother Omar Ai Ssocieties brought Sufism to the attention of many people around the world.
It is therefore especially interesting and valuable. One of the better books on secret socieities, as it leaves out the ususal tin-foil hat type conspiracy nut theories. No gold of the Templars bequeathed to George Washington’s brother-in-law buried under a Burger King in Deluth with clues on Fruity Pebbles ceral boxes, or other such nonsense. No Indiana Jones or Nicolas Cage to reveal the hidden truth As you will notice from the reviews here, even the tin-foil hat types can’t completely dismiss this book!
That says a lot about the book and I mean that in a good way.
It is a good book, and Shaw was certainly well versed in Middle Eastern cults. The book delves very little into the rituals and mystical hogwash of the orders, and instead gives a history of the society, hence the title. The tin-foil hat types will be dissapointed because Shaw chose to use reliable, historically traditional information, like Marco Polo’s travels. Since Polo was actually in the Middle East, he didn’t have to invent ridiculous theories to fill in gaps. Many in the West disbelieved Polo’s remarkable tales of such things as street lamps in Arabia at first, but eventually he was proven right.
It’s already been pointed out that Shaw wrote the book under a psuedonym People who enjoy history and true crime will enjoy this book. The Kali worshipping Thugees, the Knights Templar, and even the extremely overated and now completely extinct Illuminati are all here. Some sections of the book deal with the Middle Eastern assassin cults, whom would gladly kill themselves thinking they would attain Paradise, helping us see the Al-Qaida type cults of today are not an anomally, but part of the history of the Islamic world.
