Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Highly engaging"  —Library Journal

Library Journal

By defining seemingly disparate Sophists and philosophers, islands and magical objects, Cox (Cracking the Da Vinci Code) and Foster (An A to Z of the Occult) attempt to synthesize a more complete picture of Plato's Atlantian civilization. Following contemporary theory, their introduction suggests that Atlantis was merely a didactic metaphor rather than a political center. Thought-provoking comparisons are made, like that between the Mesoamerican Quetzalcoatl and the Egyptian Osiris, which the authors suggest were the same Atlantian creature. While periodically inclined toward the astonishing, the book is still highly engaging.
