Books by von Daniken Erich.

Erich Anton Paul von Däniken (born 14 April 1935) is a Swiss author of several books which make claims about extraterrestrial influences on early human culture, including the best-selling "Chariots of the Gods?", published in 1968. Von Däniken is one of the main figures responsible for popularizing the "paleo-contact" and ancient astronauts hypotheses.

The ideas put forth in his books are rejected by a majority of scientists and academics, who categorize his work as pseudohistory, pseudoarchaeology, and pseudoscience. Early in his career, he was convicted and served time for several counts of fraud or embezzlement, and wrote one of his books in prison.

Von Däniken later became a co-founder of the Archaeology, Astronautics and SETI Research Association (AAS RA). He designed Mystery Park (now known as Jungfrau Park), a theme park located in Interlaken, Switzerland, that opened in May 2003.

Evidence of the Gods. A Visual Tour of Alien Influence in the Ancient World by von Daniken Erich

Ancient humans had the natural urge to document the world in which they lived, a fact that is evident in the cave paintings and carvings that still exist today. Why do rock paintings from various sites around the world all seem to depict the same things? Did the peoples of the prehistoric world have contact with each another? Is it possible that some were transported to far-flung locations in what our ancestors could only have described as "flying chariots"?Erich von Däniken, one of the best-selling authors of all time and regarded by many as the father of the ancient alien theory, continues his mission to uncover Earth's ancient past--this time with more than 150 extraordinary full-color photographs--in Evidence of the Gods.This extensively illustrated book features never-before-seen photographs from his unique archive, compiled throughout decades of searching around the world for traces of the cosmic gods whom he believes came to Earth thousands of years ago. Evidence of the Gods offers the best and most impressive evidence to date, along with concise explanations for the images, to bolster the case that von Däniken has already been making quite convincingly for years.Evidence of the Gods is his most convincing--and thoroughly entertaining--work yet.Did extraterrestrial visitors really leave their unmistakable traces on our planet thousands of years ago?The images will speak for themselves.

Gods From Outer Space, Return to the Stars or Evidence for the Impossible by von Daniken Erich

Erich von Daeniken has a very interesting approach to investigating the origins of the human race (do we come from the outer space?). He is not an educated archaeologist - he is an hotelier with great interest in history of human race, of its origins. He is ready to travel wherever there is something interesting to be seen and not yet fully explained by contemporary science. He does not claim that what he says is the truth (unlike many people who write these sorts of alternative-history books) - he only raises questions, brings forth very interesting findings.

History Is Wrong by von Daniken Erich

Erich von Daniken again shows his flair for revealing the truths that his contemporaries have missed. After closely analyzing hundreds of ancient and apparently unrelated texts, he is now ready to proclaim that human history is nothing like the world religions claim - and he has the proof! In History is Wrong , Erich von Daniken takes a closer look at the fascinating Voynich manuscript, which has defied all attempts at decryption since its discovery, and makes some fascinating revelations about the equally incredible Book of Enoch. Von Daniken also unearths the intriguing story of a lost subterranean labyrinth in Ecuador that is said to be home to an extensive library of thousands of gold panels. He supplies evidence that the metal library not only has links to the Book of Enoch but also to the Mormons, who have spent decades searching for it, believing it to contain the history of their forefathers. And what about the mysterious lines in the desert of Nazca that look like landing strips when viewed from the air? Archeologists claim they are ancient procession routes. "Think again!" cries von Daniken as he reveals the data that the archeologists never even thought to check. History is Wrong will challenge your intellect - and maybe a few long-held beliefs.

Remnants of the Gods. A Virtual Tour of Alien Influence in Egypt, Spain, France, Turkey, and Italy by von Daniken Erich

We live in an age of information. But there are things in our prehistory "about which we do not have the faintest idea," writes best-selling author Erich von D niken in his gripping new book, Remnants of the Gods . Stone structures erected by master builders, mysterious underground complexes, geometrically aligned stone circles, the breathtaking pyramids of Egypt--who built them? And, perhaps more importantly, where did these builders obtain such incredible knowledge? Erich von D niken shows in detail how whole countries were surveyed thousands of years ago. Hundreds of Stone Age holy places are located at equal distances from one another, forming giant squares and triangles. How was all of this possible? Classic archaeology provides no answers to these questions. Worse still, it doesn't even appear to be interested. Are we all threatening to become "camp followers of disinterest," as Erich asks? Featuring more than 160 color photos and illustrations, Erich reveals the secrets of "impossible buildings" in Europe and the Mediterranean region, describes "crazy facts," and relentlessly exposes false doctrines. Remnants of the Gods will make even strident skeptics reconsider what they think they know of the past.

The Eyes of the Sphinx. The Newest Evidence of Alien Contact in Ancient Cultures

The world-famous bestseller Chariots of the Gods introduced the theory that ancient Earth had established contact with aliens. Now, Erich von D niken's The Eyes of the Sphinx reveals startling evidence that could prove it. Erich von D niken's theory of alien contact with the ancient world is so incredible, yet so logical and convincing, that it has become part of a wide-ranging debate that continues to this day. His claims that an alien race helped create the pyramids of Egypt were based upon the ruins themselves. And it is these ruins that now provide researchers with a never-ending source of clues, compelling discoveries, revelations, and evidence that Earth was indeed colonized by an alien race.

The Gods and Their Grand Design by von Daniken Eric

The Gods Never Left Us The by von Daniken Eric

When Chariots of the Gods was published 50 years ago, it began a worldwide change in humanity's view of the cosmos. In an era of the military space race, Erich von D?niken boldly proclaimed that Earth had been visited by more advanced beings early in our history. But prescientific man had no concept of space ships, so he called their vehicles "chariots," and those driving the chariots became "gods." Over the next five decades, von D?niken's more than 40 books built an ever-stronger case for Earth being visited by extraterrestrial visitors. And Chariots became an international best seller, with 30 million copies sold in more than two dozen languages. Also during that time, the case for ET visitations millennia ago was being reexamined by contemporary UFO researchers, who found evidence of modern visitations. And von D?niken expanded his perspective to encompass the present. Now, he presents his long-awaited sequel to Chariots of the Gods , proclaiming that the gods never left us with all-new material to show that ancient aliens are still with us. The Gods Never Left Us contends that recent advancements in biotechnology, astrophysics, engineering, and artificial intelligence not only give us a fresh perspective on his ancient astronaut theory but actually validates it. We are - as a race - embarking on the exact same trajectory of our own interplanetary colonization, just as von D?niken suggested Earth itself was colonized. ETs are definitely at work today. And that affects all of us. Why do they do what they do? What could an extraterrestrial species possibly gain from observing us in the same way we look at ants? What have these strangers wanted for the past thousands of years? Can't they leave us alone? And what makes it so difficult for us to acknowledge the existence of these extraterrestrials? That is what this book deals with.
