Author of the classic Secret Societies and Subversive Movements.
Secret Societies and Subversive Movementsby Nesta H. Webster
The East is the cradle of secret societies. For whatever end they may have been employed, the inspiration and methods of most of those mysterious associations which have played so important a part behind the scenes of the world's history will be found to have emanated from the lands where the first recorded acts of the great human drama were played out--Egypt, Babylon, Syria, and Persia. On the one hand Eastern mysticism, on the other Oriental love of intrigue, framed the systems later on to be transported to the West with results so tremendous and far-reaching.

This book is a must-read to fully understand the unseen and unknown (by most sheeple) events which have shaped this world. Due to the era in which it was written, a person needs to get past the formal style of her writing, but I would consider this book indispensable to fully understand how these secret organizations have basically taken over world events. This is absolutely the best source-read this first and then go on and read other authors on the same subject, as I have. Don't be uninformed as most sheeple are these days!
There are few resources from the past that are so reliable as Nesta Webster, and this is one of several books that she has given us. To ignore her as she exposes hidden forces which shaped our history is to be ignorant of our history. Yes, the style is old-fashioned, but the information is the foundation of many conspiracies today, and gives some of them an historical credibility.
An interesting look at various secret societies.
