This is an account of astrological influence on historical theories, and especially on theories of historical cycles and millenarianism from the Middle East to Europe, and from Mesopotamia to the Renaissance, with a final chapter on the legacy of these ideas in more recent times. For many hundreds of years astrology was not a fringe science, but mainstream, and its influence has been enormous.
