A brilliant historical study of the perceived importance of secret societies in Europe – extremely relevant at a time when suspicion of secret plans for world domination by religious cults or underground organisations is becoming increasingly widespread once again.

Conspiracy theories involving secret societies were prevalent in Europe in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Dr Roberts describes them as the collective nightmare of a particular culture – a nightmare that taps into very deep and powerful fears in people. His intelligent scholarship throws a penetrating light on a murky area of shifting and proliferating alliances between evanescent and shadowy organizations, as he plots the legendary careers of many of the conspirators who became the demon kings of revolutionary Europe.
