520    "Secret societies have fundamentally shaped America's 
       cultural and political landscapes. In ways that are 
       expected but never explicit, the bonds made and lessons 
       learned through the most elite of secret societies have 
       helped make their members senators, governors, ambassadors,
       CIA directors, Supreme Court justices, and even 
       presidents. At the apex of these institutions stands Yale 
       University and its ancient six secret societies, with 
       their modern--and even more private--"underground" rivals.
       Tracing a history that has intrigued and enthralled for 
       centuries, winning the attention of such writers as Ernest
       Hemingway, William Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald, 
       Skulls and Keys recounts the founding and growth of Yale's
       storied societies as they set the courses for self-
       education, ambition, and assimilation that have served to 
       define our modern age."--Jacket flap.
