Format: Paperback
"Of the estimated 2,500 books and magazine articles published about the lost civilization, The Atlantis Encyclopedia is the only one of its kind. It is an attempt to bring together all the known details of this immense, continually fascinating subject, as well as provide succinct definitions and clear explanations." - From the Atlantis Encyclopedia

Most books about the lost continent of Atlantis are largely theoretical. However, The Atlantis Encyclopedia is more fact oriented, focusing on areas such as geology, oceanography, and astronomy, as well as the numerous folk traditions around the world which preserve memories of a great flood. The exhaustive information presented in this book is the result of more than two decades of continuous study and international travel by the author. From Morocco's underground shrine to Britain's Stonehenge, seldom seen solar monuments in Japan's remote forests to a cannibal temple in Polynesia, Frank Joseph takes novice readers, specialists, and skeptics alike on an intensive journey through Atlantean civilization.

The Atlantis Encyclopedia-written in an alphabetic, encyclopedic format-also offers comprehensive information about the Pacific counterpart to Atlantis: the lost kingdom of Mu, also known as Lemuria. A few of the topics covered in this book:

* Viracocha, the early Inca culture-hero who "rose" from the depths of Lake Titicaca

* Balor, the king of the giant Sea People in Irish folklore

* Island of Jewels, the paradisiacal realm in Hindu myth. At the center of this island hidden by misty akasha, was a magnificent palace where all wishes were granted.

* Enki, the sea-god of Sumerian myth who was a pre-flood culture-bearer from Atlantis

* Numinor, J.R.R.

I was never a big fan of the Atlantis fantasy, that was until two years ago when I had the idea to use satellite imagery to search for signs of lost cities. I wanted to find locations to start my search, so I went to the history section of the book store and came across this book. Although I was a little embarassed to buy a book with "Atlantis" in the title, I couldn't pass it up. There is an incredible amount of information on obscure discoveries and off-the-beaten-path historical sites in this book. What is great about the Atlantis aspect of it, is that it does not push a pet theory, but instead offers up everything related to it such as Atl, Mu, flood myth, or "sea people". Suprisingly, I went on to make some very interesting satellite discoveries of my own and wrote a book, Noah's Ark, Discovering the Science of Man's Oldest Mystery, that lends support to an Atlantis beginning for civilization.

There are over two thousand books and articles published about Atlantis: so why the need for yet another? Unlike others on the topic, The Atlantis Encyclopedia offers less speculation and more emphasis on known facts gathered from geology, astronomy and other scientific disciplines. Ongoing research, international travel, and on-site explorations by the author gather the facts past and present, gathering plenty of evidence to point to the conclusion that Atlantis at least existed.

I checked the entries dealing with topics from Sanskritic sources, the tradition with which I'm most familiar. Every entry suffered from misspellings and, far worse, from a serious garbling of the accounts preserved in South Asian texts -- to the point that a Hindu reading the entry would scarcely recognize it! This total muddling of the facts (which could easily have been checked by a copyeditor) make me very queasy about accepting any of the other material in this book as reliable.

A well researched, tightly edited encyclopedia of Atlantean lore would actually be welcome. I'm very disappointed that this one isn't more useful for serious students. (Sorry for the negative review!)
