This book is a juicy rundown of weird secret society rituals. Since it was written in the late 1800's, it gives an interesting glimpse into the way Christian religious leaders viewed not only secret societies, but also other religions and peoples. Muslims are first "Turks" then later "Mohammedans", Hindus are "Hindoos", Native Americans are "American Savages", Asians are "Chinamen", and Jews are Jews with an implied snarl.
A British classical liberal Thomas Mackay (1849 – 1912) in 1891 put together a collection of anti-socialist essays by leading classical liberals: Edward Stanley Robertson, Wordsworth Donisthorpe, George Howell, Charles Fairfield, Edmund Vincent, Rev. B.H. Alford, Arthur Raffalovich, Frederick Millar, M.D. O’Brien, F.W. Beauchamp Gordon and Auberon Herbert. The book was intended to rebut the socialist ideas contained in "Fabian Essays in Socialism" edited by George Bernard Shaw; and in 1894 was followed by "A Policy of Free Exchange".
The book contains chapters, concerning racial distribution and feudal relation; Scotland and the Normands, 1066-1286; the Scottish policy of Edward I; the War of Independence, 1297-1328; Edward III and Scotland; Lancaster and York; the English alliance, the Union of the crowns and the parliaments.
