Secret Societies And Subversive Movements   By: (1876-1960)

Book cover

Secret Societies And Subversive Movements by Nesta Helen Webster is a thought-provoking and highly informative book that delves into the dark underbelly of secret societies and their subversive activities. Webster presents a detailed examination of various secret societies throughout history, shedding light on their origins, ideologies, and their influence on national and global affairs.

One of the strengths of this book lies in its meticulous research. Webster's extensive study of historical documents, primary sources, and testimonies gives readers a comprehensive understanding of the secretive workings of these societies. The author masterfully weaves together facts and insights to paint a compelling picture of their hidden agendas, rituals, and clandestine operations.

What sets Secret Societies And Subversive Movements apart is Webster's ability to analyze the impact of these societies on world events. By diving deep into historical events such as the French Revolution, the rise of communism, and the Bolshevik Revolution, she skillfully connects the dots between secret societies and their role in shaping major political shifts. Webster argues that these organizations have often played a significant role in inciting revolutions, fostering social unrest, and manipulating public opinion.

Furthermore, the book highlights the potential dangers posed by secret societies to individual freedoms, cultural traditions, and national sovereignty. While some may dismiss the idea of secret societies as conspiracy theories, Webster argues that their influence should not be underestimated. She provides compelling evidence of their existence and their real impact on geopolitical landscapes.

One criticism of the book is that Webster's writing style can be dense and academic, making it challenging for some readers to fully grasp the complex historical narratives. Additionally, the book could have benefited from more balanced analysis, as Webster sometimes seems to generalize the motives and actions of secret societies without considering potential counterarguments.

Overall, Secret Societies And Subversive Movements is an important contribution to the study of secret societies and their influence on world history. Despite its occasionally dense writing style and lack of balanced analysis, Webster's research and insights into these secretive organizations make this book a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding the hidden forces behind historical events.

"There is in Italy a power which we seldom mention in this House ... I mean the secret societies.... It is useless to deny, because it is impossible to conceal, that a great part of Europe the whole of Italy and France and a great portion of Germany, to say nothing of other countries is covered with a network of these secret societies, just as the superficies of the earth is now being covered with railroads. And what are their objects? They do not attempt to conceal them. They do not want constitutional government; they do not want ameliorated institutions ... they want to change the tenure of land, to drive out the present owners of the soil and to put an end to ecclesiastical establishments. Some of them may go further...." (DISRAELI in the House of Commons, July 14, 1856.)
