John Major Jenkins books:

My major published books are listed below beginning with the most recent. The three most recent books were published with my own imprint, Four Ahau Press. The reason for this was the pre-2012 time restriction on sharing the late-breaking research, as well as the increasing difficulty of getting my rational, well documented research on 2012 published. After 2009 there was an increasingly reactive and irrational climate of treatment of the topic. The first nine books listed are still in print and available for sale. See the “Books” page.
