Physical Factors of the Historical Process

This volume brings together a reprint of Physical Factors of the Historical Process (1924) by Alexander Chizhevsky (1897-1964), newly output solar cycle graphs from 1750 until 2032 by SILSO (Royal Observatory of Belgium) and an afterword by Robin Watkins. By establishing a statistical parallel between solar activity and collective cycles such as global conflicts and epidemics, this publication functions as a speculative extension of Chizhevsky's theories and work. The book was edited by Laura Preston, and printed as a two-coloured risograph and bound with gauzed red glue. [publisher’s note]
