Nesta Webster Secret Societies and Subversive Movements

It is a matter of some regret to me that I have been so far unable to continue the series  of studies on the French Revolution of which The Chevalier de Boufflers and The  French Revolution, a Study in Democracy formed the first two volumes. But the state  of the world at the end of the Great War seemed to demand an enquiry into the present phase of the revolutionary movement, hence my attempt to follow its course  up to

modern times in World Revolution. And now before returning to that first  cataclysm I have felt impelled to devote one more book to the Revolution as a whole  by going this time further back into the past and attempting to trace its origins from  the first century of the Christian era. For it is only by taking a general survey of the  movement that it is possible to understand the causes of any particular phase of its  existence. The French Revolution did not arise merely out of conditions or ideas  peculiar to the eighteenth century, nor the Bolshevist Revolution out of political and  social conditions in Russia or the teaching of Karl Marx. Both these explosions were  produced by forces which, making use of popular suffering and discontent had long  been gathering strength for an onslaught not only on Christianity, but on all social and  moral order.
