Description

Behind the ordinary history of the world lies a second, hidden story-- of secret societies, lost civilizations, sinister conspiracies, and mysterious events. Alternative visions of history have been around for nearly fifty years and popular culture has rapidly fed into this growing obsession, from The X-Files to the phenomenon of Dan Brown's novel, The Da Vinci Code. But how secret are these secret societies and what traces do the murky events of hidden history leave behind?

The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Societies and Hidden History holds all the information you've been looking for to guide you through the shadows of this mysterious world. Here you'll find the facts, arguments, important figures, and theories surrounding key questions being asked by many today: Do secret societies actually control the world, and if so, what do they plan to do with it? What were the real origins of Christianity, the Freemasons, or the French Revolution? What is the significance of King Arthur, Leonardo da Vinci, and Adolf Hitler to the world's secret societies? Like the quest for the Holy Grail of legend, the truth behind the shadowy side of history is easier to seek than to find. John Michael Greer is a unique guide: using a wealth of research, he also draws upon personal knowledge of secret societies and the occult underground world to guide you through the fascinating labyrinth of conspiracy theories, unsolved historical mysteries, lost arcane sciences, and secret organizations.

As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
