If you're interest in astrology goes deeper than the personal aspects of the subject, this is a book for you. Like people, countries can said to be born at a certain time and therefore one can draw a birthchart for them, although this book does not only countries but all sorts of things that relate to the world, like its genesis (for instance), the birthchart for Christ, or many suggested dates for the beginning of the age of aquarius, along with a section on rulerships. If there are several contending birthcharts for a country or an event, they are pretty thoroughly listed and drawn. There is no analysis of the charts themselves, this being up to you, although if you are able to do this, you will be able to see all sorts of interesting connections - I in particular noted recent upheavals in Libya and Iran as particularly clearly marked. Even in relation to the personal, one will see connections in these charts. Excellent

The Book of World Horoscopes is quite simply a masterly piece of historical scholarship and astrological erudition. Far from being simply an impressive and comprehensive list of event charts for countries, treaties and other important moments in history, it also includes contextual commentary which allows for the identification of the significance of each event; this provides the essential background so as to enable the astrologer to make use of the multitude of charts contained within.

The introduction itself is an important discourse on the practice and use of mundane astrology and the planetary listings in the appendices for all the charts offer a marvellous springboard for astrological exploration. Dr. Campion is to be highly commended for collating decades of observation and delineating significances. Literally no astrologer should be without this book.

This book is essentially a collection of almost 500 charts relating to the founding of countries and other important national events. Written by an expert astrologer and historian, the collection is a demonstration of scholarly mastership, where the author's narrative winds through and around the charts, highlighting the most valid points of historical and political significance. This isn't simply a collection of charts and data, though it would be admirable enough at that; Nick has served the interests of astrologers particularly well in offering analysis on the moments of importance, details of other charts that have been suggested or rejected, (and why), and illuminating explanations on the political twists and turns that accompanied their creation. As always, Nick's commentary is lucid, well-researched, easily read, and a source of interest as well as reliable fact. The Introduction alone is a work of major significance, covering important philosophical and methodical issues that need to be addressed by anyone attempting to put such charts to good use.

Absolutely thorough and if you are interested in mundane astrologer, you need to have this, but don't treat it as a Bible. You need to recheck. Also take into account that this is written from a eurocentric perspective, so quite often the departure of the colonial power is considered more important than subsequent coups. Syria is an example.
