I thoroughly enjoyed the in depth look at the connection between Freemasonry and British Imperialism. Harland-Jacobs displayed incredible research by going straight to the source - Masonic libraries. I commend her for that. However, it is not what Harland-Jacobs included in the book that troubles me, its what she left out.

The most irrefutable and disturbing evidence of British Imperialism through the mode of Freemasonry is Cecil Rhodes and his formation of the well documented Round Table Groups. Rhodes, who was initiated into Freemasonry at the Apollo University Lodge No. 357, also joined a Scottish Rite Lodge at Oxford called the Prince Rose Croix Lodge No. 30. Rhodes, with an eye towards advancing the British Empire stated in one of his seven famous wills the following;

"The day I became a member in the Masonic order, I saw the wealth and power they possess, the influence they hold. I think over their ceremonies and I wonder how a large body of men can devote themselves to what at times appear the most ridiculous and absurd rites without an object and without an end.

"Why should we not form a secret society with but one object - the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States, and for...making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire?"

The men who followed Rhodes' footsteps in creating his Masonically oriented secret society for the advancement of the British Empire were all Freemasons and British Race Patriots - Lord Rothschild, Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Milner, and Arthur Balfour. Astonishingly, Harland-Jacobs only mentions Cecil Rhodes in passing on page 274 when she describes a Masonic lodges closing down during a siege;

"Meanwhile, in Kimberley, the hall was converted into a hospital; a local Mason reported to London that 'during the siege we practically closed up Masonry.' (Cecil Rhodes, also a Mason, was in Kimberely during the siege.)"

Why Harland-Jacobs chose to leave out such irrefutable evidence pointing at the connection between Freemasonry and British Imperialism is beyond me.
