Book Description

An encyclopedic compendium of the myths and actual events from humanity’s ancient civilizations that reveal the influence of visitors from the 12th planet--the Anunnaki

• Offers easy access to the myriad characters and subjects covered by the seven books of The Earth Chronicles series

• Provides alphabetical listings to the terminology of ancient civilizations concerning their gods, kings, cultures, and religions

• Contains detailed summations, commentaries, and instructions for locating topics within all the author’s books

The Earth Chronicles series, a historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and planet Earth, began with the publication of the bestselling The 12th Planet. The series is based on the premise that the myths from the world’s earliest civilizations were in fact recollections of actual events and that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet--the Anunnaki, inhabitants of the 12th planet. The series’ books include The 12th Planet, The Stairway to Heaven, The Wars of Gods and Men, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, and The End of Days, all products of the author’s unmatched study of the ancient records of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, Israel, and Egypt and the civilizations of pre-Columbian America. Unearthing the hidden history of Earth and mankind, the series uses the past to unveil the meaning of the prophesied future.

Zecharia Sitchin has created an encyclopedic compendium of the key figures, sites, concepts, and beliefs to provide a unique navigational tool through this entire opus. Entries are coded to indicate at a glance their cultural origin and contain summations, commentaries, and guidance for locating the topics within all of his books, including Genesis Revisited, Divine Encounters, The Lost Book of Enki, The Earth Chronicles Expeditions, and Journeys to the Mythical Past.



Editorial Reviews

Review

"You can't know where you are going without knowing where you've come from--if you disagree, then just look at the news to see what I'm talking about. Zecharia Sitchin's universal field theory of humanity could, and for his millions of readers it has, in and of itself, started the peoples of the world on the road to unity. Reading his work explains so much, it makes sense, it feels right, you name it. And it's very entertaining because the story of mankind's creation is the most interesting story in history, no?" (Monte Farber, reviewer)

" . . . invaluable for keeping the reader on top of the mass of information contained in Sitchin's books. If you haven't yet ventured into the Chronicles, here's your launching pad." (Nexus New Times Magazine, Vol. 16, No. 4, June-July 2009)

"For anyone just getting started on Zecharia's work, I suggest reading 12th Planet and Genesis Revisited and keeping this handbook close. For those interested in facts, this is a must for getting to the bottom of our human history." (Rahasya Poe, Lostus Guide magazine, July 2009)

" . . . a 'must' for collections already owning most of [Sitchin's] treatises. New Age libraries will find it a powerful conclusion." (The Midwest Book Review, Oct 2009)

"Fans of Sitchin will greatly appreciate this condensation of information; those unfamiliar with his work may discover ideas of interest to explore further. . . Open this book anywhere and begin to dream." (David Paulsen, Ekaha Enchanments, Hawaii, Feb 2010 >)

". . . serves as a handy reference book for anyone interested in the study of ancient man and his mythologies and religions. . . . an essential addition to your Ufological library." (Sean Casteel, Conspiracy Journal, May 2010)

From the Inside Flap

ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS / ARCHAEOLOGY

The Earth Chronicles series, a historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and planet Earth, began with the publication of the bestselling The 12th Planet in 1976. The series is based on the author’s study of Sumerian tablets as well as other ancient texts, of which he is one of the world’s leading authorities, and shows that the myths from the world’s earliest civilizations were in fact recollections of actual events and that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet--the Anunnaki, inhabitants of planet Nibiru.

The series’ books include The 12th Planet, The Stairway to Heaven, The Wars of Gods and Men, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, and The End of Days, all products of the author’s decades of research and unmatched study of the Bible and of the ancient records of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, Egypt, and the civilizations of pre-Columbian America. Unearthing the hidden history of Earth and mankind, the series--totaling more than 2,300 pages--uses the Past to unveil the meaning of the prophesied Future.

In The Earth Chronicles Handbook, Zecharia Sitchin has created a unique encyclopedic compendium to provide a navigational tool for this entire opus. Entries are coded to indicate at a glance their cultural origin and contain summations and commentaries, reflecting Sitchin’s innovative understanding of the Past.

ZECHARIA SITCHIN (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years prior to undertaking his life’s work--The Earth Chronicles.

One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.

Zecharia Sitchin, like Albert Einstein, has devoted his life to uncovering a "unified field theory," a single, elegant explanation/equation at the heart of all things and their interactions, in Einstein's case, and in all things related to humanity and its interactions in the case of Sitchin. The difference between them is that Zecharia Sitchin discovered his universal field theory of humanity and even planetary evolution, while Einstein, despite his history-changing theories, died before he could achieve his life's dream.

I am obviously a fan of Sitchin's work and with good reason - it has changed my life. Since childhood I have been sure of few things, but one of them has been that things are often not what people and books tell you they are - most times, you have to discover the truth yourself. Parents, siblings, friends, advertising, school books, teachers - you name it. It's not that they want to lie to you, most of them, it's that they're parroting to you what they were told without questioning whether or not it makes any sense. I've spent my life with my BS detector set on "high" and this has made me a seeker, not a joiner. But this seeker has often had to stop himself from giving up his own writing and publishing life's work - I've got over forty titles on Amazon - and devoting himself totally to helping Zecharia get his work out to a world that so obviously needs it.

You can't know where you are going without knowing where you've come from - if you disagree, then just look at the news to see what I'm talking about. Zecharia Sitchin's universal field theory of humanity could, and for his millions of readers it has, in and of itself, started the peoples of the world on the road to unity. Reading his work explains so much, it makes sense, it feels right, you name it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Earth Chronicles review May 10, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The definitions were thorough, but not tied by reference to any book or page number. There was no concordance type approach to be able to compare and contrast between books or by subject or theme. It was more like a dictionary of terms than a serious research tool. It was disappointing to see so much original, solidly documented evidence go into the book series, yet not into the handbook. I'm still waiting and hopeful that a serious research reference work will be compiled by the author. All the material is there. It merely needs to be indexed properly.

The Earth Chronicles Handbook is a tiny volume as handbooks go. It has a little over 200 pages. I was expecting something more voluminous. For the material it covers it is brief but precise. I needed a quick review of the pyramid wars as well as summaries of Tiamat and Nibiru for a continuing study of probable interplanetary weapons fired from Earth. This brief volume served my needs well. Additional material on solar system interplanetary fighting may be found in the works of Joseph P Farrell.

The book is written as a Dictionary/Encyclopedia for the terms used in Sitchin's Earth Chronicle series of books. Anyone that has read, or is reading his books, knows there are hundreds of new terms for the reader which can be extremely difficult to keep track of. I have read three books so far and am working on my 4th and I have almost 20 pages of notes on a yellow pad to help keep track when I decided to pick up this reference book and I am so glad I did to look up the many various terms and names... These get confusing, especially since the same person may have different names depending on whether we are reading the Sumerian name, Akkadian name, Babylonian name, Egyptian name... of the same person; for example, EN.KI, who is also EA and PTAH (in Egyptian), or Noah, aka Utnapishtim in Akkadian, or Ziusudra in Sumerian language/texts. Taking notes AND having this reference book is critical to keeping track or looking up this or that...

The book is extremely well organized, cross referencing terms, and providing the origin of the word; is it a Sumerian (bold text), Akkadian, Canaanite or Hebrew term (Italics), Egyptian (Capital letters)... Also, if the interpretation of something is that of Sitchin, the reference will include 'ZS'.

Also, I highly recommend you get the hardcover version of this book and the Kindle version of the other books!!!! I say this because the font size in the paperbacks is so small that it will dissuade many from finishing the book (at least my my 50+ year old eyes) so the Kindle version lets you adjust the font size making for easy reading and the Kindle version include pictures.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a book, Not what I expected June 14, 2009
Format:Hardcover
When I saw that it was a "comprehensive guide" to the Earth Chronicles series, I thought it was a basically a summarized version of the 7 books maybe with some updated commentary. It's not that at all, it's a simply an index of keywords with definitions and references to other keywords.
So you can look up Enki and get some definition and it will say "see also xxxxx".
Since I don't have the 7 books, it's pretty much useless to me... I'm not sure how useful it would be even if I did
