An invaluable reference source on Atlantis...

It's a shame this book isn't back in print or there isn't some current book like it. Stahel illustrates Atlantis exactly in the proportions that Plato described it in his dialogues, Timaeus and Critias. For people out there wondering how big a stadia is, or why scholars are so resistant to the possibility of such an incredible civilization ever existing, here is your answer: Atlantis, as described, was huge. Many of the buildings were on par with the great pyramids of Egypt, then, if the Atlanteans w ere also responsible for those on the Giza complex and the Sphinx, as is one current theory, that would be the case. The one down side of the book is that none of the illustrations are in color, but Stahel is an excellent pen and ink artist . You also h ave to wade through some of his own views on Atlantis in the beginning (the Atlantis/Santorini theory being quite popular at the time), but, all things considered, this a must for any serious student on Atlantis to have in their collection.
