A dense account of the background and workings of Chinese secret societies from their establishment in Singapore in 1820 to their probable virtual eradication in 1980s. The 100 artefacts illustrated include altar paraphernalia, seals, membership papers, and folios which together with a glossary offer insights into the important and not always completely negative roles of the secret societies.
