Dr. Shilov's significant discoveries, gleaned over a lifetime of archaeological investigation of Ukrainian Steppe kurgans and graves, have revised academic understanding of the origins of Indo-Europeans, Aryans and Slavs. He has shown that civilisation did not originate from slave-holding Sumer (c.3,200 BCE in Mesopotamia) but began from the community of Aratta (c. 6,800 BCE in the Danube-Dnipro region). For these discoveries he has received international and national honours with monuments in the city of Komsomolsk and the city of Sicheslav (Dnipropetrovsk).

I bought as a new chapter of global history esp about the origina of man ,,, with Aratta displacing fertile crescent as the beginning of mankind esp with background (20-40,000 BC) way earlier than Gobeki Tepi and showing the orgins of the Mideast Gods and of earliest writing / proto writing (20-30,000 bc, long long before Sumerian writing (2-3,000 bc) considered first before this ... and giving earliest history todate of global religion ... witht eh Aratta gods the same as the Ananaki of Mesopotamia and this early writing the writing before Indian Vedas... etc etc and so ... do have a gripe that the pictographs, shown are too small and the depictions of only fair quality ... archeology needs to hugely NOW update with this proven Aratta and Gobeki Tepi NEW history for mankind ... and fold it into a new story of mans beginnings

The print is very small and the author's style is a bit challenging, Some of the research is well done, but much of the reliance on linguistic folk-etymology could be spurious. His case would have been made stronger by a more thorough appeal to the archaeology and a better layout to include diagrams of the sites and better image plates. Additionally this could have been put into two volumes. The second I ould probably say should begin sometime after Herodotus. The Pelasgian connections to the pit grave culture is interesting. Many of his sources are not available in English, but the material is interesting and it represents a serious attempt to chronicle an area poorly understood by English speaking countries.
I had high expectations for this book. The title mentions 20,000 BC. I thought I was going to learn a lot of interesting facts about some very ancient people. But the book is boring and it jumps around a lot. It isn't satisfying. The author has two axes to grind - that Slavs are the supreme beings who treat everyone perfectly, and that pretty much everyone else is absolute trash, slaveholding trash, which would apply to Greeks, Romans, Christians, Jews, etc. The author sneers with hatred every time he mentions the Jewish Zionists or the horrible people who believe in the Bible. Everything that isn't Slavic is termed "slaveholding". He would have been more persuasive if he didn't keep showing his hatred and scorn. But above all else, the book is disjointed and boring. His axe to grind puts everything else in doubt.
I have no problem calling to task any civilization that depended on slavery. Slavery isn't a good thing. I didn't want to give up on this book. I gave it a fair shot. But in the end, I can't recommend it. I don't think it's very good. If you want history, I suggest Will Durant, the greatest historian who ever lived. Shilov is a waste of time. His greatest sin isn't that he's so pro-Slavic and anti-everything else. His greatest sins are that he's boring and disjointed. It's a chore trying to get through this book. It's ponderous.
This book makes science fiction an applicable term. The scholarship is of a comic book variety laced with wild conclusions based on fraudulent pseudo-sources eg Veles Book. The approach and the tone of the text is typical Slavic area turgid, nationalistic, less than rational rhetoric. It is chilling to think that these people have the Bomb.
