While most books on Atlantis take a subjective view, this one leans clearly towards the scientific. This book looks at the topic of Atlantis from a geographical and geological viewpoint and amasses a large amount of evidence and expert opinions to prove that (1.) Parts of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge were above sea level until about twelve thousand b.c. (2.) Atlantis existed in the tropics. There is no attempt to place Atlantis at Santorini as many other books try to do, Zhirov placed Atlantis squarely in the Atlantic, just as Plato did. If one reads Plato, and takes him literally, none of the other possibilities, like placing Atlantis on Thera, or in Indonesia, or any other place besides the Atlantic Ocean are possible (and yes, Plato knew where the Atlantic was and what the Straits of Gibralter are). Zhirov also offers what we know of the history of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the book is illustrated with many black and white maps and diagrams. It is a great addition to any library dealing with Atlantis or the lost continents, but, also unlike other books like this, the author does not romance his topic. Zhirov looks at the subject through cold geologocal facts, the same evidence that others try to use to discredit the theory, and concludes that Atlantis existed. It is a very important book written from a new point of view, a scientist's view.
