The Lately Tortured Earth

Exoterrestrial forces and Quantavolutions in the Earth Sciences

Authored by Alfred J. De Grazia

First published by Metron Publications in India in 1983, The Lately Tortured Earth is the first systematic treatment of the role of exoterrestrial forces in the Earth Sciences from a catastrophist viewpoint. One by one, the major elements of geology and physical geography are discussed in the light of new discoveries about the dynamics of exoterrestrialism and their effects upon the Earth's atmosphere, continents, oceans, and life forms. Attention is given to ancient legends and history. The present book is part of the Quantavolution Series, in which in the 1980s Alfred de Grazia developed his theory, affecting all branches of knowledge, that the world has changed by sudden, intense, large-scale movements within a short and recent period of time.
