Mark Booth

The Secret History of the World

This New York Times bestselling work reimagines world history though the belief systems of Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Kabbalists, and others.
They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history as we know it written by the wrong people? What if everything we’ve been told is only part of the story? In this groundbreaking and controversial work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling tour of our world’s secret histories.
Booth starts from a dangerous premise: That the stories put forward by the world’s various cults and mystical traditions are true. From there he relates a deeply provocative alternate history of the past 3,000 years. From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Don Quixote, from George Washington to Hitler—Booth shows that history needs a revolutionary rethink, and he has 3,000 years of hidden wisdom to back it up.
