On Order



For 170 years they have met in secret. Their initiates become presidents, senators, judges, cabinet secretaries, and spooks. They are the titans of finance and industry and have now installed a third member as US President George W Bush. This intriguing behind-the-scenes look documents Yale's secretive society, the Order of the Skull and Bones, and its prominent members, numbering among them Tafts, Rockefellers, Pillsburys, and Bushes. Far from being a campus fraternity, the society is more concerned with the success of its members in the post-collegiate world. Included are a verified membership list, rare reprints of original Order materials revealing the interlocking power centres dominated by Bonesmen, and a peek inside the Tomb, their 140-year-old private clubhouse.
