"ARE THE PLANETS of our solar system as fixed in their orbits as we have alwaysa believed them to be?
They have not been, according to Dr. Velikovsky, and may not always be in the future. he contends that more than once within historic times they have run amok and caused enormous cataclysms:...land masses were destroyed; and large portions of the human race perished.
...the worst series of catastrophies occurred about 1500 B.C., in the days of Moses and of Joshua, and aother series took place inthe 8th and 7th centuries B.C...set the ancients revising their calendars from what had been a year of 360 days. " from blurb on the dust jacket.
