Iíve just published Gill Zukovskisí detailed review of David Pankenierís book Astrology and Cosmology: Conforming Earth to Heaven, (Cambridge Univ. Press, 2013). This (in Zukovski's words) offers an in-depth exploration of ďhow the heavens have played a key role in shaping the culture and civilization of China in ancient and historical periodsĒ. The author David Pankenier is Professor of Chinese at Lehigh University, Pennsylvania, with specialist expertise in Sinology and long-term interests in cultural astronomy and archaeoastronomy.
The review is packed with information about the content of the book and the issues Pankenier raises. It will be very helpful to anyone with serious interests in this area, especially those wondering whether this new academic text is worth the investment.
