This is the famous, sometimes infamous, work of Albert Pike. Albert Pike helped to shape the Scottish Rite into what it is today. Mr. Pike also worked to help shape the Blue Lodges in America. Very good read, although sometimes a bit thick in victorian rhetoric.
I've read Morals and Dogma and it is a hard book to read, only if you make it so. If you sincerely want to learn, not just about freemasonry, but about self, then this is an excellent source for education. Try it...you'll like it.
