I downloaded this book thinking that I may get an in depth account of the influence of Masonic thinking in the creation and expansion of the British empire. However, this book focuses most of its narrative on giving a detailed account of the history of the Masons in the British Empire. These are two completely different topics.
If you are a Mason, are intimately familiar with their beliefs, or have read a lot about Masons and want a substantial amount of additional details of their history in Britain since the early 1700's then this is no doubt the book for you (assuming you don't mind some repetition).
If instead you are a history enthusiast, wanting perhaps to understand the interaction of the many factors that made the British and later the American Empires what they eventually became, and wonder what role Masons may have played, you may be disappointed.
It's also extremely long winded.

This is an interesting text for the Masonic student; however, very likely dry and uninteresting for everyone else. The book chronicles how Masonry spread with the empire and contains many interesting details, but the book itself is wordy and requires a fair amount of effort on the part of the listener. I would recommend this to any Mason for general knowledge.
