Mark Adams, Meet me in Atlantis
I will depart from my usual practice of covering coins and technology and mention a recent book I enjoyed that has little of either.
Mark Adams' Meet Me in Atlantis: My Obsessive Quest to Find the Sunken City documents the charming cranks and visionaries who are searching for the ruins of Atlantis.
This is a semi-serious book, with a bibliography and index, yet simultaneously functions as a travel book. 300+ pages. No knowledge of Plato is required to understand the book. The author visits Santorini [= Thera], Doñana National Park in Spain, and Morocco. Candidates in Antarctica and Michigan are rejected.
The Atlantipedia website and its operator are also featured.
