Underground: The Disinformation Guide to Ancient Civilizations, Astonishing Archaeology and Hidden History (Disinformation Guides)

Underground!: The Disinformation Guide to Ancient Civilizations, Astonishing Archaeology, and Hidden History - Preston Peet Oh, how I love a good conspiracy book. It's like a good science fiction novel, with the added frisson that someone out there actually believes it. Plus, you can play spot the logical fallacies! The Disinformation books are a good clearinghouse for ideas that are not "mainstream," and this is one of their better ones. The articles run the gamut from "Quite plausible" to "Wonder what drugs they've been taking?" I particularly enjoy the ones that start off very realistic and then make a wonderful left turn deep into loony land. Also, just FYI, Von Daniken is still out to prove aliens landed here in prehistory, dammit!That being said, there are arguments in here so painful to read that they will make anyone with a firm grip on reality want to stab themselves in the eye. So reader beware.
