The Hidden History of the Human Raceby Michael Cremo
Synopses & Reviews
Over the past two centuries researchers have found bones and artifacts showing that people like ourselves existed on earth millions of years ago. But the scientific establishment has suppressed, ignored, or forgotten these remarkable facts. Why? Because they contradict the now dominant view of human orgins, which holds that humans like ourselves evolved withing the past 100,000 yeaars from more apelike ancestors.
The Hidden History of the Human Race, a book sure to ignite controversy, brings these paradigm-breaking discoveries to light. Deploying an unexpectedly great number of convincing facts, deeply illuminated with critical analysis, Cremo and Thompson challenge us to rethink our understanding of human orgins, identity, and destiny.
"Your book is pure humbug and does not deserve to be taken seriously by anyone but a fool." Richard Leakey
"A stunning description of some of the evidence that was once known to science, but which has disappeared from view due to the 'knowledge filter' that protects the ruling paradigm." Phillip E Johnson, author of Darwin on Trial
"I believe this book to be one of the landmark intellectual achievements of the late twentieth century....Never before has the case for a complete re-evaluation of the human story been made more reasonably and rationally." Graham Hancock, author of Fingerprints of the Gods
Over the past two centuries, researchers have found bones and artifacts showing that people existed on earth millions of years ago.

" Hidden History is a detective novel as much as a scholarly tour de force. But the murder is not the butler. Neither is the victim a rich old man with many heirs. The victim is man himself, and the role of the assassin is played by numerous scientists." Dr. Michael Rothstein, Politiken Newspaper, Denmark
Includes bibliographical references (p. 281-308) and index.
