The author, using many facinating sources of information extends the book of Stephen Oppenheimer (Eden in the East) and narrows the prime location of Eden to the north island of Luzon, Philippines, an area with twin volcanoes Penitubo and Ararat. It is believed that ancient sea traders (spice etc.), like the surviving sea gypsies, dispersed by sail to many parts of the globe after volcanic disaster and influenced the Sumerians and other ancient cultures. The evidence is profound. Agriculture in SE Asia goes way way back into the Ice Age, more then 18,000 BP, while mammoths roamed Eurasia. This is not an easy book to follow without considerable background experience about the history of SE Asia, especially the islands now called Austronesia. I accept most of the ideas. Most of the blog material came from the websites[...]. You are probably better advised to go to the author's very long sambali blog. It won't cost anything and it is very interesting. The author's second book is much like this one but cheaper.
If the possibility of a prehistoric movement from an Ice Age time south east asian land mass which could have existed when sea levels were considerably lower appeals to you, better read the Oppenheimer book Eden in the East. The evidence is frustratingly thin anyway but at least it is told with scholarship, reasoning, evidence and argument in a series of thematic chapters. No such luck with this lazy and overpriced offering.
