1421: The Year China Discovered America
Review by Rhoda[@] on 05/04/22 review stating 1421: The Year China Discovered America
I have read the books, 1421 and 1424 by Gavin Menzies, and I found both books well written and carefully researched. The magic of this video captures the essence and importance of both books. This is a most important video; well formatted, and well produced, presenting the most important parts of both books. It is an honest presentation of Menzies theories. Since I am a researcher in Chinese studies, I found this video an excellent resource material. Rhoda Curtis

Well documented theories to investigate!
Review by Birdwatcher on 05/04/22 review stating Well documented theories to investigate!
I have read both books and found them to be both interesting and well documented. As a history teacher I would like to point out that there are many aspects of history that have gotten passed over in most general education classes in the US. These are interesting theories that merit investigation. Just because the general public isnt aware of the great empires and technology of Asia (or for that matter Africa) does not mean they did not exist.

1421 1434 excellent books
Review by Saul on 05/04/22 review stating 1421 1434 excellent books
I have read both books and can honestly say they are amazing. I love to read and I often do deep research on different history topics for my academic papers. These books 1421 1434 are excellently documented and they present a very interesting argument about the mistaken belief that Europeans discovered American and other parts of the world. The study analyzes the fact that the Chinese empire of the 1420s was far more advanced and prepared than Europeans to accomplish the discover of the world before Europeans. For those who are in the constant search of the truth and authenticity, I strongly recommend these lectures.

The Black Legend in its many forms
Review by Truth S. on 05/04/22 review stating The Black Legend in its many forms
Its truly amazing how the English consistently attempt to rob Spain of its glorious accomplishments to the point of creating fantastic fantasies. Mr. Menzies is probably a Hispanophobe or a Sinophiliac (or both!); his next book will be titled 1955: The Year China Landed on the Moon? LOL!
