    DescriptionThe amazing surprise "New York Times" bestseller, filled with "breathtaking glimpses into worlds that heretofore have been little explored" ("Foreward") They say that history is written by the victors. But what if history-or what we come to know as history-has been written by the wrong people? What if everything we've been told is only part of the story? In this groundbreaking and now famous work, Mark Booth embarks on an enthralling tour of our world's secret histories. Starting from a dangerous premise-that everything we've known about our world's past is corrupted, and that the stories put forward by the various cults and mystery schools throughout history are true-Booth produces nothing short of an alternate history of the past 3,000 years. From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore, from Christian cults to Freemasons, from Charlemagne to Don Quixote, from George Washington to Hitler- Booth shows that history needs a revolutionary rethink, and he has 3,000 years of hidden wisdom to back it up.

    Review quote
    Praise for "The Secret History of the World" "An entire library's worth of scholarship [in] a single volume." ?"San Francisco Gate" "Authentically mind-boggling." ?"Kirkus" "Booth's history incorporates so many disparate philosophies. . . His universe is full of bizarre theories, entertaining primarily for their weirdness." ?"Publishers Weekly"
