Reviews

"The Craft is a superb book that often reads like an adventure novel. It's informative, fascinating and often very funny."--The Times (UK)
"A fascinating tale...Mr Dickie has turned legend into history."
--The Economist
"The Craft is a shadow history of modernity. Though more sober than most lodge meetings, it is, like its subject, ingenious and frequently bizarre... The Craft is well-crafted and sensible, making good use of English archives which have only recently been opened."
-- Spectator
"[John Dickie] takes on this sensational subject with a wry turn of phrase and the cool judgment of a fine historian... I enjoyed this book enormously. Dickie's gaze is both wide and penetrating. He makes a persuasive case for masonry's historic importance."--Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times
"Convincingly researched and thoroughly entertaining."
--The Wall Street Journal
