CHANGES TO ATLANTIS: THE TRUTH
as compared to Genesis Unveiled, published by Virgin in 2002
This comparison is best made by listing the contents of Genesis Unveiled. Note that 'contents much the same' usually means that though the sections and evidence presented are much the same, the arguments and analysis may have been substantially refined.
INTRODUCTION: retitled 'PREFACE' and substantially rewritten.
PART 1: REVELATIONS
1 MYTHS IN THE MAKING: minor editing only.
2 A SPIRITUAL WORLDVIEW: deleted because superseded by more recent books on spirituality.
3 DEBASEMENT AND DESTRUCTION: substantially rewritten especially from a spiritual perspective, with the ‘karmic catastrophe’ section renamed ‘karmic reboot?’, ‘the Deluge’ section removed, and Hermetic and Gnostic material added from old Chapter 17, as well as new Egyptian material.
4 THE ARTS OF CIVILISATION: substantially rewritten, although contents much the same.
5 THE GOLDEN AGE: substantially rewritten, although contents much the same.
6 ROUND AND ROUND WE GO: chapter renamed 'WORLD AGES AND UNIVERSAL CYCLES'; substantially rewritten, contents much the same apart from the addition of the section ‘cycles and precession’.

11 ANOMALOUS ARTIFACTS: removed because not essential and reproduced in updated form here.
