‘1421’ Fiction Petition
Two critical issues have arisen from the claims of Gavin Menzies, his supporters, and his publishers:
- the academic scrutiny of his claims
- the ethics of his publisher’s strategies
In order for those issues to be highlighted, it is proposed that a petition be created requesting that public libraries and other repositories of public knowledge re-classify '1421' as fiction, in the same vein as the 'Da Vinci Code' is so classified
If you wish to be a signatory to the petition, please email:
