The Sunken Kingdom falls into both categories: Plato’s Atlantis is a. .

The Sunken Kingdom falls into both categories: Plato’s Atlantis is a mystery only to those who care; and the solution offered in a readable and well-argued fashion, is not conclusive. Peter James distinguishes between believers, chasing the real Atlantis, and sceptics who are hostile to the very idea; but I fear he is omitting a far larger category – those who find this a waste of time.

This is a curious piece of work. Peter James is not an academic, but a popular writer; however, he has a thorough grounding in academic research, and his work is most often dignified and useful. This has the making of a first-rate piece of research: the solution it proposes is built on very well-grounded view of the evolution of Greek legend, and involves a minimum of unlikelihoods (although some of it depends on whwther we can expect a Greek noble family to preserve traditions altogether unknown outside its circle, since James' solution involves the handing down of garbled accounts of a major disaster into Plato's own family, which was very blue-blooded indeed). Indeed, if it was a matter of the theory alone, I would say that James is probably right and recommend this book unreservedly.
However, there are features about it that remind us that James is a popularizer, not to say a vulgarizer. The historical account of the theory of Atlantis is justified and pleasant, but the silly partisan defence of Plato is simply overblown posturing verging on the crankish; nor does Plato need it. This is a valid piece of work, but one could wish that James had given it a different shape.
