In his book Chariots of the Gods? (New York: Bantam, 1972) Von Daniken offers many other "proofs" that ancient cultures had contact with visitors from other planets.
Why is the word "proofs" in quotation marks?
Is the word Bantam the name of the publisher? Or something else?
Re: quotation marks
1. The use of the quotation marks suggests that the writer of the sentence does not believe they are real proofs at all, but that they have merely been presented as proofs.

Did you see Tiger Wood's "apology" today? (Actually, I thought he was mostly genuine, so I shouldn't write it that way).
2. Yes, the publisher.
