A classic and highly controversial exposé of the secret world of the Freemasons reissued with a new introduction by Martin Short, author of ‘Inside the Brotherhood’.
The Freemasons have long fascinated outsiders. The subject of Dan Brown’s new novel – set for release in 2007 – this secret and exclusive society, thought to be the largest in Britain today, remains a mystery to the many excluded from its ranks. One would never know if a father or brother was a member due to the mandatory vow of secrecy.
In this classic, controversial exposé, Stephen Knight talks to the men on the inside – those who have broken their vow of secrecy to reveal the darker side of the ‘brotherhood’. Do they influence the law? Is the KGB involved? And is there is a secret group of Masons running the country today, perhaps influencing every move we make?
Fully updated with a new introduction by Martin Short, acclaimed author of ‘Inside the Brotherhood’, this is the unmissable, true story of an ancient, and mysterious brotherhood operating in our midst.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE 'ON THE SQUARE?'
700,000 Freemasons, all male, probably make up the largest secret society in Britain today. Who are they? Why are they so incredibly secretive? Is Freemasonry a positive, charitable organisation which incorporates a certain amount of harmless mumbo-jumbo, or does it in fact represent something more sinister?
Stephen Knight's impartial – but highly controversial – investigation addresses these vital questions and asks:
• Does Freemasonry influence our police and judiciary?
• Can a Christian be a Freemason?
• Have the KGB penetrated the Freemasons?
• Does freemasonry lead to corruption in public life?
Freemasons are all bound to silence, but now some of them have been impelled to break ranks and reveal part of the truth…
