Atlantis and Other Lost Worlds is the most up-to-date and comprehensive investigation of history's infamous sunken city. Nowhere else will you find a more dramatic and convincing presentation of the evidence for its archaeological reality. The book uncovers the scientific genius of the ancients and the spiritual power of their mysterious religion. They are revealed as the inventors of a crystal technology to surpass our own, and the master builders of pyramidal monuments around the world. The cultural heritage of Atlantis in the civilizations of pharaonic Egypt, Bronze Age Europe, Maya Mexico and Inca Peru is clearly described. The doomed capital comes alive in a vivid recreation of its heyday of cultural splendor and imperial might. Within the pages of Atlantis and Other Lost Worlds you will also find the answers to many questions, including: .What is the most likely location of Atlantis? .How and when was Atlantis destroyed? .Has Japan's leading geologist found the sunken 'citadel' of Lemuria? .Have Russian oceanographers found the ruins of Atlantis? .What are the disturbing parallels between Atlantis and our time? Atlantis and Other Lost Worlds opens a new window on the ancient past, offering views of Atlantis and its kindred civilizations never seen before.… (mer)

Atlantis: And Other Lost Worlds by Frank Joseph is a recommended for those interested in speculation about Atlantis and Lemuria (Mu).

After researching and writing a paper about Atlantis many years ago, the sunken city has always fascinated me. Joseph gathers evidence that he claims support the conclusion that Atlantis really existed, where it most likely was located, along with information about their religious beliefs, as well as other thoughts. He does the same for the lost civilization of Lemuria, also known as Mu. This is a book which is clearly for those who already have an interest in the topic.

Obviously, many books about Atlantis are going to have a lot of speculation rather than hard facts, which makes them entertaining, but not necessarily a scholarly work that will be taken seriously by experts. Joseph manages to present a plethora of conjecture along with some discoveries and facts that could be interpreted to potentially be Atlantis - and Lemuria. The most important thing to note is that there are no footnotes or chapter notes, so the reader has no other point of reference to refer to. There are archeological discoveries discussed, but no extensive research into them. There is only a limited bibliography.

I also wanted more pictures. There are some pictures, but certainly not enough to prove and document many things described. It also stretches my credulity when Edgar Cayce is a major source of evidence. Read it for fun if you are interested in the topic, but don't expect a serious scholarly work with well documented information.

Disclosure: My advanced reading copy was courtesy of the publisher for review purposes.

Some convincing theories about the lost civilisation fatally weekened by the equal credence given to "channeled" information from psychics and mediums.

The circumstantial evidence soon mounts up and I was left with the impression that Atlantis could well have existed - though whether this was down to the author's argument or the sledghammer repetition of ideas and concepts I don't know.

The cover's rubbish, too. It looks like a children's book. But having said all that, I enjoyed reading it and would certainly recommend it to those with an interest in the topic. ( )
