Damian Thompson highly evocative, brilliant and comprehensive account of apocalyptic belief was a phenomenal critical success upon hardback publication. It brings together the massacre at Waco, the Solar Temple suicides, the Japanese subway gas attack, UFOs, angelic visitors and other apparently unrelated phenomena and places them in the context of the dawning of a new world at the time of the millennium. This is the revised, updated edition in which Damian Thompson tackles subjects such as the millennium dome and the millennium bug; rejacketed by Vintage for the lead-up to the year 2, 000.

Industry Reviews

This is a sensible and well-written examination of how dread of personal apocalypse is made manifest in millenarian cults. From the invention of anno domini by the Scythian monk Dennis the Small to the impact of the Internet on prophecy belief, the author presents an entertaining and erudite study of the links between time and faith.
