Review: The Freemasons: A History of the World's Most Powerful Secret Society (Brief History)

User Review  - Jill Edmondson - Goodreads

At times very interesting, at times it gets bogged down in detail. Do we really care that "Fred" the cousin of the brother-in-law of the King of Somewhere was rumoured to be a Freemason but this claim is unsubstantiated? Read full review
