A renowned scholar of the Atlantis myth, Lewis Spence wrote five books on the fabled land, and this is considered by many to be his best work. Replete with the magic and romance of that fantastical lost land, this replica of the first 1926 edition includes all of the original maps, photos, charts, and illustrations, and discusses: . the differences between Atlantean and other histories . why Plato's narrative of the realm was not allegorical . the numerous historical references to and proofs of the reality of Atlantis . the geography of Atlantis . the inhabitants of and early human society in Atlantis . the kings of Atlantis . corroboration of the existence of the realm in British literature . Atlantean culture, religion, and traditions . and much, much more. Scottish occultist LEWIS SPENCE (1874-1955) was a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, and vice president of the Scottish Anthropological and Folklore Society. He authored numerous books of mythology, folklore, and the occult, including The Occult Causes of the Present War (1940), and The Magic Arts in Celtic Britain (1945).

The Atlantis story remains one of the most haunting and enigmatic tales from antiquity, and one that still resonates very deeply with the modern imagination. But where did Atlantis come from, what was it like, and where did it go to? Atlantis was first introduced by the Greek philosopher Plato in two dialogues the Timaios and Kritias, written in the fourth century BC. As he philosophises about the origins of life, the Universe and humanity, the great thinker puts forward a stunning description of Atlantis, an island paradise with an ideal society. But the Atlanteans degenerate and become imperialist aggressors: they fight against antediluvian Athens, which heroically repels their mighty forces, before a cataclysmic natural disaster destroys the warring states. His tale of a great empire that sank beneath the waves has sparked thousands of years of debate over whether Atlantis really existed. But did Plato mean his tale as history, or just as a parable to help illustrate his philosophy? The book is broken down into two main sections plus a coda - firstly the translations/commentaries which will have the discussions of the specifics of the actual texts; secondly a look at the reception of the myth from then to now; thirdly a brief round-off bringing it all together.

Lewis Spence, a prolific author and journalist, was one of the world's foremost researchers into the lost civilization of Atlantis. The History of Atlantis is one of five works the author wrote on the topic, and perhaps his most well-known. Spence's goal with this title was to offer a historical treatment of Atlantis, the mythical sunken land that's mere existence is still debated. Over the course of sixteen chapters, Spence presents his evidence for the existence of Atlantis, as well as a supposed history and examination of daily life in the lost land. The author begins by outlining the historical sources on which he has relied. The most prominent source is the writing of Plato, the great Greek philosopher. After presenting his sources, Spence launches into his history of the continent. Subjects addressed include the people of Atlantis, the ruling Kings, the traditions of Atlantis, religion, animal life, and the Atlantean culture-complex, among other topics. Spence presents each discussion in great detail, painting a vivid picture of the now-submerged continent. There is no doubt that The History of Atlantis is a quality work.

The plot thickens with an ever expanding web of CIA involvement, from underground bases with UFOs seen by JFK and Marilyn Monroe (among others) to a vaster conspiracy that affects every government agency from NASA to the Justice Department. This may have been the reason that Marilyn Monroe and actress/columnist Dorothy Killgallen were both murdered. Focussing on the bizarre side of history, Liquid Conspiracy takes the reader on a psychedelic tour de force.
