Book told through historical accounts by J.R. It was pretty boring. ( )

Knjiga Slobodni zidari je više od popularnog štiva o jednoj od najintrigantnijih tema savremenog društva. Zapravo, to je ozbiljna i sveobuhvatna studija, napisana iz pera uglednog britanskog istoričara i biografa. Ne naginjući ni na jednu stranu, niti preterano ističući sopstveni stav i mišljenje, Džasper Ridli, briljantni pisac – istoriograf, otkriva nam svet slobodnih zidara u najvećoj mogućoj meri, onoliko koliko nam dopuštaju oni koji i dalje kroje svetsku istoriju.
