What did W.A. Mozart, Oscar Wilde, George Washington, Winston Churchill, and Franklin D. Roosevelt have in common? They were all Freemasons, a secret society that has been the subject of endless fascination. To the layman, they are a mysterious brotherhood of profound if uncertain influence, a secret society purported in some popular histories to have its roots in the fabled order of the Knights Templar, or in the mysteries of the Egyptian pyramids. Debunking the myths and addressing the group's shortcomings, Jasper Ridley tells the story of the freemasons, from its inception in medieval Europe through the present day.

"Ridley captures the organization's fundamental outlook, and its morality. What is more, he is an enchanting storyteller."—Wall Street Journal
