From the Publisher:

“Colin Wilson has done it again! Yet another tour de force and a wonderful study on human perception that will be much talked about for years to come.”
-- Robert G. Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery

In this book Colin Wilson presents an interesting thesis: an ancient civilization, popularly known as ‘Atlantis’, inherited its advanced culture to other ancient civilizations as colonies, before disappearing in a worldwide catastrophe. He examines old maps, documents, archaeological records, and historical writings, to demonstrate that humankind is older than it is assumed, and that Atlanteans were the precursors and teachers of the Egyptians, Aztecs, and Mayas, etc.
The author also affirms the existence of a collective human consciousness that allowed ancient peoples to work smoothly with other members of their groups. His most interesting (and credible) statement is that the Sphinx shows signs of water damage, an indication that it is much older than "experts" say, as the recent discoveries of Robert Schoch, Boston University Geologist, prove.
