Descripción

A Roadmap of Time by Brad Steiger was published by Prentice-Hall, Inc., Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, in 1975. Not an ex-library copy, this 39-year-old, 5 1/2" X 8 1/4", 246-page, believed-to-be First Edition offering is in VG+/G+ condition. The book is very much like new, firm, crisp, and physically sound. A couple top-outer corners are mildly creased on two, random pages located in latter section of book. The dust jacket is, from end to end, in overall quite nice/sound physical shape, although there is some fairly noticeable shelf wear at top and bottom edges of jacket's spine, and much less so at the four spots where inside jacket flaps make their inward folds. From said inside flaps, "In the early 1900's, astronomer Selby Maxwell discovered the rhythm of 'tides' in the Earth's jet stream that allowed him to predict weather years in advance. Independently, Raymond Wheeler of the University of Kansas invested 20 years and a staff of over two hundred to compile detailed charts of 3,000 years of world weather and the exact dates of significant events in all of recorded history. With nearly 2,000,000 data supplemented by maps and charts, Wheeler determined that man behaves differently, but PREDICTABLY, according to climatic shifts. This book is based on over a quarter ton of manuscripts and graphs, including Maxwell's 100-foot scroll of weather dynamics and Wheeler's unpublished three volumes on weather-cultural interaction. A Roadmap of Time fully documents how Maxwell and Wheeler discovered that wars and prosperity, 'Golden Ages' and dictatorships--even styles of music and architecture-- occur repeatedly at precise points in a 100-year weather cycle. .[This book] not only makes sense of the past, but provides exact predictions of the changes Maxwell and Wheeler foresaw in the 1950's, and which are already starting to come about." This highly entertaining, sometimes disturbing effort also includes Contents Pages, an Index, and some 33 Figures(charts, graphs, tables) which help to clarify prediction strategies revealed/explained throughout. Presented in three parts spanning some twenty chapters, Part I, Discovery, offers such chapter titles as "Cyclomatic Engineering, Inc." and "Charting the Cycles of World Weather". Part II, Unraveling the Skein of the Past, offers such titles as "The Cold-Wet Phase: Rising Tides of Civil Strife", "The Warm-Wet Arts", "The Cyclic History of Music", and "1901-1975-- From Warm-Wet Booms to Cold-Dry Depressions". Part III, The Next 25 Years--and How to Live Through Them, delves into such areas as "Future Politics and Economy During a Cold-Dry Period", "Free Will, the Stock Market, and the Cell Barometer", and "On Becoming Integrated With the Cyclic Environment". This volume, Reader, must have SOME relevance today, what with all the talk of global warming/climate change/whatever "it" will be called next. Check it out. Thanks very much!!.
