Celestial Configurations of Africa and the Caribbean by Kevin David Fitch
The book is an originally researched and carefully documented study, of astronomic events, in-confluence with the historical and political conditions, of 64 African and Caribbean nations. It focuses on planetary cycles and their confluence with the political, social, and economic life, of these nations. It is based on the independence times for each nation-state, from which the astrological charts are calculated. It is well referenced and footnoted, It has been called an "encyclopedia of Mundane (political) Astrology." This book is a valuable academic tool, because of its historical basis, while the astrological overlay provides the element of time as an important character in the flowering of each nation. The book is great for beginners and seasoned astrolgers, as well as historians, looking for unconventional perspectives to help them delve deeper into other contributing causes of national events. This makes political astrology a potentially valid history tool.
