Scores of collaborative photographs illustrate Professor Zink's account of archaeological research into the massive, underwater stone structures near Bimini and Andros Islands, research claimed to confirm Atlantis's existence and something stranger still
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
An updated edition of Zink's 1978 account of his Bimini expeditions ( LJ 6/15/78), undertaken to validate his thesis that Bimini is the true site of the lost Atlantis mentioned by Plato. The results then were inconclusive but intriguing. Now, 12 years later, little new material has been added (some more accurate dating; an additional 1979 expedition which yielded little evidence). Zink is forever plagued by being inadequately equipped to investigate the finds. But the book is not presented as science so much as adventure in the tradition of Thor Heyerdahl and the great exploration narratives. Zink's writing is lively, and the arcane avenues of knowledge that he pursues are titillating if bizarre. As the narration of a nondiscovery, this necessarily falls a little flat; if you have the first edition, there's no need to buy this one. Still, there are so few frontiers, and so few with the thirst for exploration in their souls. For another book on Atlantis, see Charles Pellegrino's Unearthing Atlantis , reviewed in this issue, p. 146.--Ed.
