    1. A pleasant, readable updating of Bullock that does a bit of extra work around gender and race/ethnicity. Alas, it will not be a definitive work, more a collection of essays meant to put a religious studies foot in the game of Freemasonry studies. Central arguments are that the fraternities were a male counter-balance to the famous feminization of the churches and that outsider groups used the explicit claim of universal equality as a lever to improve the status of their specific outsider group ( [...]


    2. This is an excellent scholarly analysis of a religious movement that is often steeped in mystery. Hackett uses a wealth of historical material and a wide range of sources to trace how Freemasonry got started in America, and its contribution to American society and culture.
