It is through the studies on functional similarities between Asian and Western post-industrial esoteric societies that I came across Gratton’s Freemasonry in Shanghai and Northern China. I found his work to be important historically and as a foundation for further research on the possible exchanges that may have existed between Freemasonry (Gongjihui 共濟會 in Chinese) and Triad in the nineteen century. In that respect, this work should be consulted in parallel with the compilation series on the Chinese Triad.
