In this slender volume, which condenses a much larger book Atman (2005), Alexander Jacob advances a revolutionary thesis: Indo-European religion emerged in the Near East from the same fundamental race and civilization that gave rise to the Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Indus Valley civilizations. Most historians claim that Indo-European religion was carried into the Near East and India by a distinct ethnic group, the Aryans, migrating from somewhere North of the Black Sea.
