Format: Paperback
It has been several years since I read an earlier paperback edition of this classic and my copy is in storage, so this from memory. Robison, a Scottish professor, wrote to warn Britain and other kingdoms that the forces which toppled the French monarchy and started The Terror were still active. He traced the story of the 1776 founding of the Illuminati by Adam Weishaupt a professor at Ingolstadt and the suppression of the order by the royal and church authorities of Bavaria in 1785. The Illuminists went underground all over Europe and used existing Masonic lodges or set up their own as a cover for their activities. In Paris, the Duc d'Orleans headed the Illuminist front called the Grand Orient Lodge, his base to conspire against the ruling House of Bourbon. The English and Scottish lodges were generally apolitical amd many worked actively to keep out Illuminists as insincere applicants, but Robison maintained that some continental lodges remained hotbeds of revolutionary plotting, and therefore dangerous, at the time he wrote.

John Robison exposition of the aims of the monolithic enemy

(reference "We are opposed around the world by a monolithic ruthless conspiracy." - President John F. Kennedy)

This is a book President's of the U.S.A. read.

If you believe in Liberty - then this is a book that will inform you and in fact seperate you from those in history who were even aware of the 'unseen hand' in politics.

The enemy of the world is so confident that no one will read this that it reinforces The Good Book's maxim. "I have made a footstool for your enemies"

meaning: God himself has placed the enemy at rest, in a predictable location for the faithful.

You are not alone. Interested parties include the Free World.

Format: Paperback
This book was written in 1798, and reportedly was read by George Washington. It exposes the secret society known as the Illuminati after it was revealed by the Bavarian government in 1786. The author, John Robison, was a professor of Natural Philosophy at Edinburgh University, Scotland. Himself a Freemason, Robison had been asked to join the Illuminati but felt he should investigate the order before he joined. Robison concluded that the association had been formed "for the express purpose of rooting out all the religious establishments and overturning all the existing governments of Europe". His charges, even today, appear to have fallen on deaf ears among many of Robison's fellow Masons. His book details secret plans and sinister goals of the Illuminati and its founder, Adam Weishaupt. During the French Revolution, according to Robison, "the intelligent saw in the open system of the Jacobins the hidden system of the Illuminati." Although the organization was disbanded in the late 18th century, there is a strong indication that it continues to exist in our times.

Format: Paperback
By the time this book was first published, the organization of Bavarian Illuminati was kaput. Robinson, who had never been invited to join, and who held a grudge against all secret organizations, slammed the illuminati both in England, where it had not taken root, and in America, where it was unknown. However, his preaching against it raised the specter of conspriacy which still hangs over the illuminati, although it is very long gone. His book in interetsing as an example of sucessful ropaganda, nothing more.
