Bibliography About the Author Index
Robert M. Schoch, a lecturer at Boston University, earned his doctorate in geology and geophysics at Yale University in 1983. His books include Pyramid Quest, Voyages of the Pyramid Builders, Voices of the Rocks, Stratigraphy, Environmental Science and The Parapsychology Revolution.
"Schoch is a true scientist, following the data wherever it leads, heedless of political pressures or worn-out paradigms. Twenty-two years ago, his redating of the Sphinx launched the New Archaeology. Forgotten Civilization distills all that has happened since into a simple conclusion: that solar activity ended the last cycle of high culture and may destroy ours in turn. Schoch is no scaremonger, no hawker of a pet theory. What we do with this knowledge is up to us, but once digested, it changes everything." * Joscelyn Godwin, author of Atlantis and the Cycles of Time * "...it is pleasing, and in some ways a relief, to read a book in this field that has been written by an author with the qualifications to back up his theories..." * Trevor Pyne, Magonia, February 2013 * "Schoch's well-founded conclusion is that mankind's past on this planet is not only much older than what conventional historians have been teaching, but, as Paul LaViolette has demonstrated, we have gone through cycles of destruction and renewal corresponding to periods in and between coronal mass ejections (CME's) and solar proton events (SPE's) of our Sun." * Alan Glassman, New Dawn, January 2013 * "...a powerful account backed by scientific and historical record, recommended for new age, science and history collections alike." * Midwest Book Review, November 2012 * "Dr. Robert Schoch has produced an extremely well-studied thesis that is backed by his vast knowledge of geology and, more importantly, given the thesis impetus by his courage to go where many other academics fear to tread. Forgotten Civilization is a very well written book that not only reflects an excellent scientific research into the origins of civilization but also is highly entertaining and most enjoyable to read. Get this book and put it in a prominent place on your bookshelf. It deserves this honor." * Robert Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery *
