Weaving the story of humanity's origins by means of archaeology, mythology, and ancient texts, Zecharia Sitchin documents extraterrestrial involvement in Earth's history in "The 12th Planet." Focusing primarily on ancient Sumeria, he reveals with awesome precision a complete history of the Solar System as told by the visitors from another planet that orbits close to Earth every 3,600 years. "The 12th Planet" is the critical sourcebook on the ancient astronauts--how they got there, when they came, and how their technology and culture have influenced the human race for hundreds of thousands of years.


Publisher Marketing:

Over the years, startling evidence has been uncovered, challenging established notions of the origins of life on Earth--evidence that suggests the existence of an advanced group of extraterrestrials who once inhabited our world.

The first book of the revolutionary Earth Chronicles series offers indisputable documentary evidence of the existence of the mysterious planet Nibiru and tells why its astronauts came to Earth eons ago to fashion mankind in their image.

The product of more than thirty years of meticulous research, The 12th Planet treats as fact, not myth, the tales of Creation, the Deluge, the Tower of Babel, and the Nefilim who married the daughters of man. By weaving together the biblical narrative with Sumerian and Babylonian clay-tablet texts, it challenges the established notions of the origins of Earth and mankind, and offers a compelling alternative history and prehistory of both.



Contributor Bio:  Sitchin, Zecharia

Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.
