Item description for The Secret History of the West: The Influence of Secret Organizations on Western History from the Renaissance to the 20th Century by Nicholas Hagger...

Western civilization as we know it today is not the end result of steady progress, but of series of revolutions. The radical departure from orthodox history that Nicholas Hagger takes is to show how all these-the Protestant Revolution, which in turn provided the idealogical foundations of the English, American, French and Russian-have their roots in ideas and influences that have hitherto been unexpressed, secret.

Secret History of the West  Aug 14, 2007
I think this book contains quite a bit of historical information. If masons have led to the age of enlightenement and freedom of conscience ... well I think that is good.
What I can not agree (especially from a professor) is to use phrases like "it may be that he had met so and so" while referring to important events or (seemingly) facts. I say seemingly because of such phrases that are not exact and gives a taste of conjecture... Another point is that at very important junctures he refers to the book "the Scarlet and the Beast".This occurs too often. In a tretise such as this, I would expect a little more care to rely on different references.This is especially important when he refers to the Sion organisation and the masonic fraternity which he names Sion (rosicurian) freemasonry. As the order of Sion`s existance and story is a very controversial subject and many serious writers debate it in books and on the internet, I really would have liked to see it substantiated with more references.
Extremely Detailed  Aug 13, 2007
It seems to be factual at places and somewhat hyped at others. Basically rooted in fact, and presented in a flow of time. Excellent wrapup of euro history and influences.
Terribly Important; Absolutely Great!  Apr 26, 2007
I have just finished Nicholas Hagger's terribly interesting and important "Secret History of the West". And I am well pleased by the experience. Hagger's book is the most complete elaboration of the conspiratorial aspect of history in the period from the Renaissance to the Bolshevik Revolution that I have yet encountered. To put this in context, I have read thoroughly in this genre from Douglas Reed to Michael Hoffman and from Jim Maars and Nesta Webster to Father Denis Fahey and "Maurice Pinay". Although I don't necessarily agree with everything that Hagger records, I am nonetheless delighted with the thorough and logically sound work he has here rendered.

Hagger posits basically that revolutions, throughout the history of the West, have been fomented by occult, or secret, forces. And he proves this point quite conclusively. Even more, he does this is an extraordinarily interesting and even compelling manner.

The theme of this book differs only slightly from the wisdom I have gained from reading carefully Father Denis Fahey. The latter holds that the conspiracy is Satanic, with the Jewish nation and freemasonry as its human agents. Hagger posits that the conspiracy is Luciferian, and primarily directed by the various sects of freemasonry. This minor distinction detracts not in the least from the overall quality of this excellent work.

Mr. Hagger's description of the many conflicting factors surrounding the Bolshevik Revolution and its ultimate result, the Soviet Empire, was most enlightening. I must admit that I first rejected his analysis. But, on reflection, I have to say that his interpretation of these critical events is not only unique, but uniquely explanatory.

We are deeply indebted to Mr. Hagger for this outstanding work. And we look forward now to reading its sequel, "The Syndicate", by the same author. This is an oustanding book that we highly recommend.

By the way, we are also indebted to this site's recommendation system for enabling us to discover this important book. Absent this system, I might never have been aware of the very interesting and important work of Mr. Nicholas Hagger.
Don't Bother  Oct 20, 2006
While the book had some interesting historical information in it, it was just another "christian" hit piece against beliefs that do not coincide with their own. I found the book somewhat amusing in some respects. We are supposed to make the mental leap that because the Rosicrucians and Masons led us into the "age of enlightenment" they are supposed to be the "bad guys." HAHAHA. What a hoot!!

I really get tired of some of these conspiracy theories. Some of them make sense, but when one thinks about it, the tactics that they are using to "prove" some secret societies involvement with heinous groups can be applied to any group,including Christianity. It's ridiculous.

Unless you just want some historical information, don't bother buying this book.
