About this title


This is a hardcover book with 199 pages, followed by 7 pages of bibliography and then notes over 100 illustrations. The book also includes an eight page index. From a close study of the effects of tidal waves caused by earthquakes round the coast of Greece, Professor Galanopoulos was able to detect that there had been a tremendous volcanic explosion in the Mediterranean in the middle of the bronze age. His events led him to the Atlantis myth, and the results of his research are astonishing. He is able to show from scientific data that Atlantis could never have existed in the Atlantic, and that it must have laid somewhere in the Aegean. He suggests that the Minoan kingdom consists of a at least two islands, one of which was Crete and the other the metropolis of Atlantis. Finally he has been able to pin the location of Atlantis on the small, round volcanic island of Santorin, which once exploded in one of the most enormous eruptions the modern world has ever seen, leaving only an echo of its glory. The Atlantis myth, which has inspired such an extraordinary range of wildly eccentric speculation and theories, now has become a fact. Atlantis is an extraordinary and unique book, combining inspired scholarship and readability. It is illustrated with over 100 photographs, prints, drawings and maps, in color and black and white. Many of the photographs were taken specially for the book. This book has been planned and written as a solution to the puzzle of Atlantis - what it was, where and when it was, and how it came to an end and was lost in the mists of the past. Since what is new here derived from the work of a seismologist, concerned mainly with earthquake and volcanic processes, the approach in solution to the problem are geophysical.
