"The man in the street does not notice the devil even when the devil is holding him by the throat." ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

How many books have you ever read in which the author printed their home phone number on the first page, allowing readers to contact them directly? Well, you'll find Mr. A. Ralph Epperson's number just inside the stark black, white, and gold cover of his excellent "Introduction to the Conspiratorial View of History", THE UNSEEN HAND. I have never met Mr. Epperson, though I have spoken with him by phone on 3 or 4 occasions over the last 12 years; he is one of the nicest, most accommodating authors I've ever been in contact with, and this 1985 book is one I would strongly urge every red, white, black, brown, and yellow American who deeply cares about the Red, White, and Blue to read.

THE UNSEEN HAND is the first of Mr. Epperson's publications I perused - that was about a dozen years ago. I subsequently read several more, and while they all contained valuable information, this nearly 500 page tome with the small print and comprehensive approach to the infamous "New World Order" was easily his best.

(In the year 2000, I was practically forced by The Spirit to undertake an extensively detailed study of Freemasonry. This is far too complex a subject to address in this review, but that same year, I managed to persuade a high-ranking Mason to give me a personal tour of "The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge" of Phoenix, and I was granted a limited time to study that same afternoon in their library located in the Grand Lodge. Part of my mission was to confirm to my satisfaction that the quotations that Mr.

I first read this book in 1985. Prior to this book, I had read a substantial number of books on this topic.

What separated this book from the rest was the fact that from the beginning Mr. Epperson makes it clear that this book is written from published sources and information and documentation mostly from the secret societies them selves.

He simply put them in chronological order and wrote in a way that as one reviewer put it "...you didn't have to get the dictionary out for every other word".

No, this was well written and most important, at no time did he insult his readers intelligence.

As I said in opening, I first read this book in 1985 (I had to contact the publisher to get a copy. I was on an order list at one of the largest retail book stores in the country. When I had called to follow up almost two weeks later, I was told that they couldn't find this book for me).

Well, that made me want to read it all the more and quite frankly added another dimension of authenticity to it.

I finally received it and devoured it in about 4 to 5 days.

Around 2001 I decided to read it again. This time I took my time (6 mos.) and also started to verify things (none of which could be refuted).

I also started to highlight certain paragraphs. Well, by time I got through the 488 odd pages this time, I realized that I had practically highlighted the whole book!

I realized that I needed to purchase a few more copies to share with others. Rather than going through the hassles I did the first time, I just picked up the phone and dialed the direct number in the book. The phone rang and when answered, I found myself talking to Professor Epperson. He answered the phone himself.

Format: Paperback
The author of this book, Ralph Epperson, promises to introduce the reader to the fundamentals of the conspiratorial view of history. This view of history is in direct contradiction to the accidental view of history, or the theory of history accepted by most historians today. The conspiratorial view of history posits that all historical events are either controlled or directed by individuals or small groups of powerful people. Accidental history has no controls; events happen because they do, and no amount of effort may successfully direct events.
Epperson supports the conspiratorial view of history, and he tries to prove this theory in "The Unseen Hand," a 488 page collection of secret societies, economic totalitarianism, and communist plots. According to Epperson, the overarching theme of conspiratorial history is that of power. When the rich amass enough money, they begin to thirst for power over their fellow human beings. Since most people want to have a say in the way their lives are run, these power hungry individuals must try to enact their plans in secret by using their influence and wealth to effect change that favors the interests of the rich and powerful.
The book is roughly chronological. It starts with early events in history and slowly marches through time until it reaches the 1980's. According to Epperson, the conspiracy began with the formation of the Illuminati on May 1, 1776. The Illuminati, founded by a Bavarian professor named Adam Weishaupt, dedicated itself to overthrowing the old world order of monarchy by adopting ideals of reason. Mankind, through reason, would come to reject religion and nationalism and found a collectivistic society. Epperson quickly draws links between the Illuminati and later movements such as Marxism and the socialist Fabians.
