Review:

Excellent! Fascinating Reading! --Library Journal

From the Publisher:

When a book is republished after half a century at first you certainly think of antiquarian, maybe literary, or perhaps historical interest. With the books of Immanuel Velikovsky it is a different case. Their topicality and explosiveness has rather increased since their first publication - in disciplines diverse as geology, anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, classical studies, Egyptology, theology, psychology and also in theory of science. Because in all these disciplines the first publication of his books provoked controversies unprecedented in the history of science since Galileo. At the same time recent findings mainly in earth and planetary sciences have confirmed his results and conclusions in a really impressive manner.

There are only a few books which - like the present one - preserve their topicality even after half a century without any changes in its text. We consider it all the more important to let the works of Immanuel Velikovsky speak for themselves and to republish them without any omissions or additions. In this way the original work with its revolutionizing contents and its unique style will be made available to the interested readers - scientists and laymen alike - and so hopefully the unbiased interdisciplinary scientific discussion about Velikovsky's theories will be supported after being long overdue.

Science should increase our knowledge. In the first place this includes the open and serious discussion of facts and theories, their study, research and - if necessary - the adjustment of the methods and paradigms to the facts, not vice versa. In this respect the study of Velikovsky's works, and above all the history of their acceptance in academic circles, can teach us a lot about our understanding of science and from a psychological point of view about our understanding of ourselves.

Summing up, we are convinced that the republication of the complete works of Immanuel Velikovsky can give fundamental impulses for numerous, very diverse fields of knowledge, for science in general as well as for the view of the world of our society - and at the same time lead to a proper appreciation of the life's work of a man who, searching for knowledge and enlightenment, was personally as well as professionally confronted with the most devastating reactions.
