The Secret History of the World
The Secret History of the World
Mark Booth



They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history--or what we come to know as history--has been written by the wrong people? What if everything we've been told is only part of the story? What if it's the wrong part?

In this groundbreaking and now famous work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling intellectual tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise that everything we've been taught about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true, Booth produces nothing short of an 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 without a doubt that history as we know it needs a revolutionary rethink, and he has 3,000 years of hidden wisdom to back it up.
