"Atlantis: The Antediluvian World" is a book published in 1882 by Minnesota populist politician Ignatius L. Donnelly,who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1831. Donnelly took Plato's account of Atlantis seriously and attempted to establish that all known ancient civilizations were descended from its high-neolithic culture.
Many of its theories are the source of many modern-day concepts we have about Atlantis, like the civilisation and technology beyond its time, the origins of all present races and civilisations, a civil war between good and evil, etc.
His book is divided into five parts: The History of Atlantis, The Deluge, The Civilization of the Old World and the New Compared, The Mythologies of the Old World A Recollection of Atlantis, and The Colonies of Atlantis. In his well organized book, he adequately links Atlantis to many societies including the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Chinese, Ancient South American Indians, and Ancient Celts.
