Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

One of several books on lost civilizations recently published (see also David King's Finding Atlantis: A True Story of Genius, Madness, and an Extraordinary Quest for a Lost World, Crown, 2006), this atlas traces the history of the concept of Atlantis and surveys several possible solutions to the mystery of its location and existence. Levy, author of a number of books on historical mysteries, begins by describing the Atlantis of Plato, then reviews other possible alternatives for its location, including sites in the Mediterranean, Americas, and Atlantic Ocean. The remainder of the text deals with myths of lost lands and civilizations of other areas of the world, their relationship to the study of the Atlantis legend, and their proponents. The final chapter discusses other lost worlds. This lavishly illustrated book (with both drawings and pictures) concludes with a 32-item bibliography and an eight-page index.
