Mundane Astrology was the first book of its kind - a comprehensive critical survey of mundane astrology past and present. It tackles the problems of formulating a practical and systematic approach to the much neglected area of astrology, relating it to the concept of cycles, the Collective Unconscious and mass psychology. Now revised and updated, this second edition continues to be the definitive work on the subject and among the many questions it explores are: * Do countries have a life of their own? * What governs the world's economy? * Is it possible to predict international conflict? * Can astrology encourage international understanding?

The book starts with a remarkably thorough insight into the origins of Astrology and its subsequent development to the present day, charting the major breakthoughs that helped the discipline to establish itself as the premier intellectual pursuit of ancient and more recent times.
Although practitioners do not need any justification of Astrology, the authors do go into considerable detail on psychology which helps the reader to understand the concepts and techniques of interpreting mundane charts in a much more objective manner than would otherwise be the case.
If this were all that the book explains that would be enough for it to be valuable, however, the authors then proceed not only to demonstrate chart-reading techniques, but also to explain other extremely valuable charting techniques not requiring horoscopes! All the while cross-referencing with examples and published works.
Where this book excels is that the authors present astrology in a practical, no nonsense logical way and are honest enough to admit that they do get things wrong from time to time.
For sheer volume of extremely valuable information this book has it all - An Essential text for any serious Astrologer
