This chapter considers the mildly, moderately, and mostly shadowed regions in the book’s framework for regionalizing organizations. The shadowed regions are similar to the dark region along any two of the three dimensions in the framework, but not all three. The chapter describes Alcoholics Anonymous and the Ku Klux Klan as mildly shadowed collectives. Skull and Bones and Jackie Evans are characterized as moderately shadowed organizations. Anonymous and U.S. Special Missions Units are presented as mostly shadowed collectives. For all three regions, socialization processes are examined.

Keywords:   Alcoholics Anonymous, Anonymous, Delta Force, Jackie Evans, Ku Klux Klan, SEAL Team 6, shadowed organizations, Skull and Bones, socialization, U.S. Special Missions Units
