The Earth Chronicles series, in six voumes, deals with the history and prehistory of Earth and humankind. Each book in the series, based upon information written on clay tablets by the ancient civilizations of the Near East, records the fantastic and real battles that occurred between the original creator gods over control of planet Earth. Asserting the premise that mythology is not fanciful but the repository of ancient memories, The Earth Chronicles series suggests that the Bible ought to be read literally as a historic/scientific document, and that ancient civilizations--older and greater than assumed--were the product of knowledge brought to Earth by the Anunnaki, "Those Who from Heaven to Earth Came." The 12th Planet, the first book of the series, presents ancient evidence for the existence of an additional planet in the Solar System: the home planet of the Anunnaki. In confirmation of this evidence, recent data from unmanned spacecraft has led astronomers to actively search for what is being called "Planet X.

Author Information

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.

ARCHAEOLOGY / HISTORY Was man born a warrior, or were we taught to make war? In this, the third book of The Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin provides startling evidence that the "gods" who had come to Earth from the twelfth planet Nibiru engaged in a series of fierce battles for supremacy on our planet, enlisting the Earthlings in their wars. Sitchin relies on meticulous study of ancient records--from Sumerian tablets and the Old Testament to the ancient myths of the Canaanites, Hittites, and Hindu teachings--to trace the saga of gods and men from a creative beginning to a tragic end. He then uses modern sources such as ASA photographs of Earth taken from space to reveal evidence of a huge nuclear blast in the Sinai that took place 4,000 years ago, forever changing life on Earth. Sitchin's unique reexamination of ancient mysteries explains The Great Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and other past cataclysmic events in the history of humanity, opening insights into our future. "An intriguing book ead it. ... Sitchin is to be congratulated. ... He makes his point) and makes it well. " --The British UFO Research Organization
