5.0 out of 5 stars The Survival of an Ancient Art, 23 Jun 2009
By 
This review is from: A History of Western Astrology Volume II: The Medieval and Modern Worlds: 2 (Hardcover)
The continued study af astrology over the centuries is remarkable given the theological,scientific and now skeptical objections. The author charts the course of astrological practice over the centuries and the characters who did the predictions.

Modern day practitioners who are asked to justify their belief will find the author a great advocate and when they have finished the book they could hand it to a friend or relative who will enjoy a well-written and informative guide to western religion and philosophy irrespective of what they think about star lore.

The author brings the story up to date and I particularly liked the way he took a mere paragraph to dismiss the credibility of one well-known skeptical scientist and went on to expose the dishonesty of some academics in the way the subject it treated
