The book is printed on demand - and the wonderful thing about this kind of printing is that a book published in this manner virtually never goes out of print and can be ordered at any time in the future, even 10, 20, 50 or 100 years down the road - in any quantity desired.

This book will become more and more important as the years go by as mainstream archaeologists and historians of astronomy - slowly - begin to grasp the fact that prehistoric man was an astronomer and that many aspects of man's life in ancient days, especially knowledge, landmarking and belief systems (religion), were closely related to astronomy.

As the great Sir Bertrand Russell, "British philosopher, logician, essayist, and social critic " wrote 2 years after my birth in Human Knowledge: Its Scope and Limits, Simon and Schuster, Clarion Books, New York, 1948:
"Astronomy is the oldest of the sciences, and the contemplation of the heavens, with their periodic regularities, gave men their first conceptions of natural law."
Russell further opined that the legacy of astronomy in our "way of life" carries down to the present day, writing:
"Although we are taught the Copernican astronomy in our textbooks, it has not yet penetrated to our religion or our morals....

How far has the American outlook on life and the world influenced Europe, and how far is it likely to do so? And first of all: What is the distinctively American outlook? And what, in comparison, is the distinctively European outlook?

Traditionally, the European outlook may be said to be derived from astronomy. When Abraham watched his flocks by night, he observed the stars in their courses: they moved with a majestic regularity utterly remote from human control.

When the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, He said: 'Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?' The reply was in the negative. Even more relevant is the question: 'Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
" [emphasis added]
