They are all there -- secret societies, fraternities, patriotic organizations, fraternal organizations, religious organizations, etc. The stories of their inception, development, purpose. All inclusive -- even down to the latest ""shirt"" brotherhoods. Colloquially and informally told, and more entertaining than one would expect. A book, libraries will have to have and the organizations themselves will, for the most part, want to own. A book not for immediate over-the-counter sale, but for mall promotion and the long haul.
