Product description

Review

“Avery Morrow’s book does more than reveal an unsuspected lineage of Japanese esotericism; it gives us a new term for a genre long known in the West--‘parahistory.’ Using the Traditionalists René Guénon and Julius Evola as reference points, Morrow shows that parahistorical texts, whether ancient, pseudo-ancient, or modern, draw on a common fund of memory, or imagination. For anyone interested in the New Archaeology or the debate over Atlantis and other prehistoric high cultures, this work of inspired scholarship is essential reading.” (Joscelyn Godwin, Ph.D., professor of music at Colgate University and author of Atlantis and the Cycl)

About the Author

Avery Morrow’s research on the basis of Asian folk traditions has been published in several academic journals. His interest in parahistory brought him to Japan, where for three years he researched various documents, taught English, visited sacred sites, and worked as a translator and assistant to renowned Shintoist Shin’ichi Nakaya.
