It follows the evolution of the idea through classical times and the Middle Ages, and shows how the modern approach to the story was pioneered by an Italian poet in 1530.

In the 1860s the Flemish scholar Brasseur de Bourbourg claimed that Mayan hieroglyphs recorded a colossal cataclysm that had engulfed a large island in the Atlantic in 9937 BC - this island, he argued, was Platos Atlantis. Having examined how the myth has developed through history, the text then unpicks the key elements of what he calls the Atlantis syndrome.

To set the record straight, readers are guided through the real facts.
