Inspired by the revelation that the Sphinx had been weathered by water and not by wind-blown sand and was, therefore, thousands of years older than the oldest civilisation known to man, Colin Wilson sets out to explore the remote depths of history. The compelling argument of this bestselling book is that, thousands of years before Ancient Egypt and Greece held sway, there was a great civilisation whose ships travelled the world and who possessed some knowledge system that offered a unified view of the universe, alien to modern man. In this fascinating exploration of the world at a time when, according to Plato, the 'lost civilisation' of Atlantis was destroyed, the author makes a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten people's thought, felt and communicated on a universal plane.

About the Author:

Colin Wilson's first book The Outsider became an instant literary sensation when it was first published in the fifties. Now author of over fifty books on subjects ranging from mysticism to criminology, he is a renowned authority on the paranormal and has also written numerous articles and plays and contributed to several newspapers and journals.

From Library Journal:

The author of numerous books with a New Age bent, including the best-selling The Outsider, Wilson here presents an unusual thesis: an ancient civilization, popularly called Atlantis, transmitted its advanced culture to other ancient civilizations before disappearing in a worldwide catastrophe. He examines antique maps, documents, archaeological records, and historical writings to "prove" that humankind is older than frequently supposed and that Atlanteans were the precursors of Egyptians, Aztecs, and Maya. Wilson also posits the existence of a collective human consciousness that permitted ancient peoples to work smoothly with other members of their groups. His most interesting (and believable) statement is that the Sphinx shows signs of water damage, an indication that it is much older than "experts" say. This volume, which bears comparison to John West's Serpent in the Sky (1979), presents its theories in a sober and readable manner.
