Many of today's organizations "live in public"; they devote extensive resources to branding, catching the public eye, and capitalizing on the age of transparency. But, at the same time, a growing number of companies and other collectives are flying under the radar, concealing their identities and activities. This book offers a framework for thinking about how organizations and their members communicate identity to relevant audiences. Considering the degree to which organizations reveal themselves, the extent to which members express their identification with the organization, and whether the audience is public or local, author Craig R. Scott describes collectives as residing in "regions" that range from transparent to shaded, from shadowed to dark. Taking a closer look at groups like EarthFirst!, the Church of Scientology, Alcoholics Anonymous, the KKK, Skull and Bones, U.S. special mission units, men's bathhouses, and various terrorist organizations, this book draws attention to shaded, shadowed, and dark collectives as important organizations in the contemporary landscape.

Authors Jana Costas and Christopher Grey argue that secrecy constitutes a "hidden architecture" that underlies all organizations. Drawing on previously overlooked texts in organizational theory, as well as innovative readings of well-known classics, they show how secrecy creates a social order, establishing boundaries between insiders and outsiders that ubiquitously shape organizational decision-making and behavior.

The message described Twin Towers collapsed in September, an attacker in the air, bodies in a mound, mourners at a cremation, the words "kill," "captive," and "heaven," and more. Sept. 11th? The Davenport Stones: According to Harvard University epigrapher Dr. Barry Fell (1917-1994), Professor Emeritus; the inscriptions on the stones came from an Egyptian astrologer-priest who sailed up the Mississippi River to Davenport, Iowa in 800 B.C. Davenport and New York City share latitude. No one knows exactly when the stones were carved. But, they were found in 1877 and hailed by Freemasons, Knights Templar, and the Smithsonian Institution as proof of Freemasonry's ancient ties, and as America's Rosetta Stone, respectively-at first. 2009: Why was February 14th encoded into the artwork on the old five dollar bill? Why was a St. Valentine heart carved into the hieroglyphics on the Davenport Stones? Who was St. Valentine? And, how was his day connected with the apocalypse the stones signaled to the Templars? On a cold winter night in New York City's Central Park, a wounded knight informs astronomer Sal Smith that the fate of the world is now in his hands. Joining forces with a retired professor and the victim's lovely daughter (an Olympic kayaker from Milan), Sal and the elite team must piece together clues from currency, cathedrals, Masonic art, and the Davenport Stones. But, time is running out, and when a mysterious gentleman with access to the White House offers help--should they trust him?

The election of Barack Obama was supposed to herald the dawn of a post-racial age in America—a meaningless term without a grasp of what "racial" means. Most people assume that racism grows from the perception of human difference: the fact of race gives rise to the practice of racism. In this myth-busting reflection, the sociologist Karen E. Fields and the historian Barbara J. Fields argue the opposite: the practice of racism produces the illusion of race, through what they call racecraft. And racecraft is intimately entwined with other forms of inequality in American life. So pervasive are the devices of racecraft in American history, economic doctrine, politics, and everyday thinking that the presence of racecraft itself goes unnoticed. That the post-racial age has not dawned, the Fieldses argue, reflects the failure of Americans to develop a legitimate language for thinking about and discussing inequality across the board. That failure should worry all who care about democratic institutions.
