Loyalists & Malcontents tells the story of Freemasonry in South Carolina and Georgia from the 1730s to the War of Independence and beyond. The book describes how the lodges at Charleston and Savannah were linked to their counterparts in England, and paints a portrait of the planters, lawyers and merchants who comprised South and Freemasonry's elites.

Born in London, Ric lives with his family in Oxfordshire.
