100 Controversial History Books to Find on a Bookshelf

100 Controversial History Books to Find on a BookshelfThis is a list of 100 genuine non-standard history books, including authors and a brief summary of what the book is about, that can be used to flesh out a bookshelf quickly.

The books listed are most suited for a game set in the modern era, as many were published in the 20th century, or later.

The books cover a range of topics, from fringe theories to outright pseudoscience, on topics such as sunken continents, including Atlantis, ancient astronauts, the catastrophe theory of history, lost civilisations and alternate historical timelines.

Results can be chosen randomly, by rolling d100, or by manually selecting appropriate books.

Here are some sample results:

78. The Lost Continent of Mu: Motherland of Man by Col. James Churchward (Mu was a continent in the Pacific and the centre of civilisation 25,000 years ago)
79. The Lost Ship of Noah: In Search of the Ark at Ararat by Charles Berlitz (Investigation into the Durupinar site, believed to be where Noah’s Ark landed)
80. The Mars Mystery: A Tale of the End of Two Worlds by Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval and John Grigsby (A prehistoric Martian civilisation destroyed by a comet comparatively recently, and a possible terrestrial one too)
