Synopses & Reviews
Many thousands of years ago, a race of extraordinary beings guided the evolution of life on earth, determining the existence and nature of mankind as we know it today. The proof of their genius is apparent in the mysterious monoliths at Stonehenge, and in a strange but highly significant structure of concentric stone circles in Israel's Golan Heights – requiring sophisticated astronomical knowledge. This book illuminates the turning point in our species' history. From deep inside ancient Sumerian texts that predate even the Bible, Zecharia Sitchin dares to reveal the nature of prophecy and historical truths that have long been obscured by disbelief and misunderstanding: the code used to construct our kind by master builder from the stars.
“Readers interested in the Kabbalah and in numbers mysticism will find Sitchin provocative.” UFO Magazine
“In terms of scholarship and research, his books are light years away from those other popular authors.” New York Tribune
About the Author
Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.
