Born out of bloodshed, sustained by sectarianism and shrouded in secrecy, the Orange Order is one of the most abiding and controversial religion-based organisations in Europe, if not the world.

Quite an interesting read, learnt a lot about the various Loyalists Orders without getting bogged down with the paramilitary issue or NI politics. Obviously not the most well balanced of books but it does go through both the good and bad sides of the Order and gives the views of people outside of the Order on both sides of the divide. An interesting read, especially for those with no connection with the Order, just to get a feel for how it works and what its all about.
