Description

Revealing spying activity and secret societies through history. Secret History shows how hidden forces have always shaped the true course of history, from the mystery cults of the ancient world to the clandestine societies of Revolutionary Europe; from the nascent secret services of the 17th century to the sprawling espionage empires of the Cold War; from the lone genius of Archimedes to the vast military-industry complex of the Manhattan Project. Who were the powers behind the thrones? How many battles were decided before sword was drawn or shot ever fired? To what extent are great moments in history scripted and stage-managed by actors who never take the stage?

The role of history has always been to help us understand the present and think intelligently about the future. Today, as much as at any time in the past, the true forces that shape the course of events are hidden. Do countries go to war for the stated moral and political reasons, or to fulfil secret nexus of economic and strategic goals? What are the real relationships between America and the repressive regimes it counts as allies in the War on Terror? To what extent are Western democracies actually controlled by big business and special interests?

Perhaps a future historian will be able to answer these questions definitively. For now we must look to the lessons of the past to give us clues about the present. That’s what this book aims to provide: episodes and incidents from history that shed light on the role of hidden forces in shaping that history. Perhaps they can shed a little light on the history that is being made today.
