Members Only: Secret Societies, Sects, and Cults--Exposed!.pdf
Julie Tibbott is an editor of teen fiction at a major publishing house. She makes her home on New York City's Lower East Side, once home to members of many mafia groups, gangs, and underground anarchists. She's not a member of any secret societies. . .or is she?
Clubs aren't just for kids anymore. Since the earliest days of human culture, people have banded together to pass on traditions, climb up the social ladder, and sometimes just avoid being excluded themselves. Some of today's groups have been around for centuries and others have developed in just the past few decades. But members of these clubs walk, talk, and live all around us; we just don't always know it. Members Only provides a glimpse into the underground cults people love, fear, and cannot resist. Delving into different groups like Opus Dei, the Freemasons, and the Skull and Bones, the book uncovers the how, what, when, where, and why of these mysterious groups. Members Only reveals the shared beliefs and actions of these organizations so that we, too, can access secret worlds we didn't even know were there.
