A bestselling conspiracy expert chronicles the history of secret societies, beginning in ancient Egypt and continuing through today's Council on Foreign Relations, showing the longsuppressed connections between these societies and the overt military, political, and social history of the world.


Set aside your preconceptions of the world, of what you've read in your history textbooks, and what you see and hear from the mainstream media. Jim Marrs, award-winning journalist and author of Alien Agenda and the New York Times bestseller Crossfire, is about to change your perspective, as he unmasks the hidden masters of history and religion.

In Rule by Secrecy Marrs painstakingly examines the world's most closely guarded secrets, tracing the history of secret societies and the power they have wielded, from the ancient mysteries to modern-day conspiracy theories. Searching for truth, he uncovers disturbing evidence that the real movers and shakers of the world collude to start and stop wars, manipulate stock markets and interest rates, maintain class distinctions, and even censor the six o'clock news. And they do this under the auspices of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the CIA, and even the Vatican. According to Marrs, the power of these groups extends as far back as humankind's prehistory. Drawing on historical evidence and his own impeccable research, IMarrs clearly traces the mysteries that connect these modern-day secret societies to the Freemasons, the Illuminati, the Knights Templar, and Egypt's Great Pyramids. The result is a masterful synthesis of historical information, much of it long hidden from the public, that sheds light on the people and organizations that rule our lives.

Disturbing, thought-provoking, and utterly compelling, Rule by Secrecy offers a provocative worldview that may explain who are we, where we came from, and where are we going.
