The Earth Chronicles series, a historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and planet Earth, began with the publication of the bestselling 'The 12th Planet.'

The series' books include The 12th Planet, The Stairway to Heaven, The Wars of Gods and Men, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, and The End of Days, all products of the author's unmatched study of the ancient records of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, Israel and Egypt and the civilizations of pre-Columbian America. Unearthing the hidden history of Earth and mankind, the series uses the past to unveil the meaning of the prophesied future.

Zecharia Sitchin, an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, is distinguished by his ability to read Sumerian and other ancient texts. He was a journalist and editor in Israel for many years and now lives and writes in New York.
"You can't know where you are going without knowing where you've come from--if you disagree, then just look at the news to see what I'm talking about. Zecharia Sitchin's universal field theory of humanity could, and for his millions of readers it has, in and of itself, started the peoples of the world on the road to unity. Reading his work explains so much, it makes sense, it feels right, you name it. And it's very entertaining because the story of mankind's creation is the most interesting story in history, no?"

Wisdom hath built her house; She hath hewn out her seven pillars. Proverbs 9:1 In the seven books of The Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin has amassed a vast volume of information about Mankind's ancient civilizations, ranging from the Near East, Africa, and Europe to the Americas--presenting it all in the context of a unified understanding of gods and men of the Past as a key to unlocking the Future. The Earth Chronicles Handbook is both a useful tool for navigating through the 2,300 pages of those seven books as well as a unique compendium that provides in alphabetical order, in one volume, data from all parts of the world, indicating for each entry its cultural source. It is, in a way, a key to the Seven Pillars of Ancient Wisdom. Praise for The Earth Chronicles Series "Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling." --Library Journal "For thousands of years priests, poets, and scientists have tried to explain how man was created. . . . Now a recognized scholar has come forth with a theory that is the most astonishing of all." --United Press International "A dazzling performance. . . . Sitchin is a zealous investigator." --Kirkus Reviews
ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS / ARCHAEOLOGY The Earth Chronicles series, a historical and archaeological adventure into the origins of mankind and planet Earth, began with the publication of the bestselling The 12th Planet in 1976. The series is based on the author's study of Sumerian tablets as well as other ancient texts, of which he is one of the world's leading authorities, and shows that the myths from the world's earliest civilizations were in fact recollections of actual events and that the gods of ancient peoples were visitors to Earth from another planet--the Anunnaki, inhabitants of planet Nibiru. The series' books include The 12th Planet, The Stairway to Heaven, The Wars of Gods and Men, The Lost Realms, When Time Began, The Cosmic Code, and The End of Days, all products of the author's decades of research and unmatched study of the Bible and of the ancient records of Sumer, Babylonia, Assyria, Egypt, and the civilizations of pre-Columbian America. Unearthing the hidden history of Earth and mankind, the series--totaling more than 2,300 pages--uses the Past to unveil the meaning of the prophesied Future. In The Earth Chronicles Handbook, Zecharia Sitchin has created a unique encyclopedic compendium to provide a navigational tool for this entire opus. Entries are coded to indicate at a glance their cultural origin and contain summations and commentaries, reflecting Sitchin's innovative understanding of the Past. ZECHARIA SITCHIN (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years prior to undertaking his life's work--The Earth Chronicles. One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.
