Her debut novel, Amba , is a national bestseller and was published in English under the title The Question of Red. Consider the case of Bakunin, whose life as a wandering person in exile was not untypical among the organisers of secret societies. Having absorbed much of the living history of these societies, he in turn inspired groups in Spain, Italy, and Russia that followed his example for many years to come.

    In this way, Bakunin was part of a chain that linked practices rather than organisations. All in all, secrecy would seem to be the only common denominator discernible among secret societies, yet even this is not a simple matter. Organisations may hide their aims, their rules, their rites, their members, a combination of this, or their very existence.

    They can do so under external pressure or following their own free will. And this can change over time, or at any rate be perceived in a different light by changing observers, for the definition of secrecy itself was in constant flux in much of Europe since the waning of the Middle Ages. In this confusing context, it helps to distinguish between two different modes of secrecy in associations. Minority groups anywhere often are or have been involuntarily clandestine for some time.

    They were in many ways still-clandestine forerunners of the modern political parties, but also symbols of national independence and unity over much of Europe. On the contrary, it was supposed to continue for a considerable time after the insurrectional moment. With the extension of the right to vote, the improvement of education and the growth and acceptance of open associations, secret societies became less attractive to the radical liberals and socialists who had been their most ardent organisers.
