Description

The appearance of Dan Brown's bestselling The Da Vinci Code (Corgi, 2004) and The Lost Symbol (Corgi, 2010) lubricated interest in secret societies. Ritual America is an entirely different book. This joyfully humorous visual guidebook, appointed with hundreds of rare photographs and illustrations from the authors' archives, personal scrapbooks, snapshots, news service photos, lost era magazines and internal documents, lifts the lid on the strange but hugely influential phenomenon of freemasonry and fraternal organisations in America.

Reviews
"Ritual America is an impeccably designed and wide-ranging survey of the topic that indulges in neither sensationalism nor extreme skepticism. Parfrey and Heimbichner cover Freemasons and Oddfellows, Jesters and Rosicrucians. They mine the possible Masonic roots of Mormons and magic. -- Brian Doherty, Reason.com
