Product Description

TWO THOUSAND YEARS have passed since the death
of Christ and the world is going mad. Nihilist prophets,
born-again pornographers, transcendental schizophrenics
and just plain folks are united in their belief in an
imminent global catastrophe. What are the forces lurking
behind this mass delirium?
First published in 1987 Apocalyse Culture has immediately touched a nerve. Alternately excoriated and lauded as epochal, the most important book of the decade, APOCALYPSE CULTURE had begun to articulate what many inwardly sensed-the fear-inspired upsurge of irrationaiism and faith, the clash of irreconcilable forces, and the ever-looming specter of Up de race. In its present incarnation for Feral House, APOCALYPSE CULTURE has significantly increased in size, taking on new perspectives on our current crisis, with pertinent revisions of many articles
from the original edition.
APOCALYPSE CULTURE is a startling, absorbing and exhaustive tour through the nether regions of today's psychotic brainscape.
Parfrey has edited a new book of revelation, a collection which is almost as awesome and terrifying as the original
biblical text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book. 24 May 1996
By A Customer
Reality is mediated, and most people don't have the time or
interest in exploring different realities -- but for those of
us who know that reality is a strange and wonderful place,
AC is alot of fun. This book opens up the world for the reader
and explores regions of mankind which are ignored by the
national media. Get this book and read it, and never again
be satisfied with the commodified, safe version of humankind
delivered by traditional sources. Conspiracy, freaks, the end
of civilization; Take a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars the world's going to hell in a handbasket 23 Jun 1997
By A Customer
_Apocalyspe Culture_ edited by

Adam Palfrey (second edition)
is a hard book to classify;

perhaps the closest one could

get is to describe it as a

compilation of alternative

writings on the sorry state of

current society.

The book is divided into two

parts. The first part points to

the evidence of our society's

moral decay, with essays ranging

from one that encourages

self-castration, to an interview

with an admitted necrophiliac,

to the Muslim program as

outlined by Elijah Muhammed.

The second part of the book

purports to show the

sociopolitcal results of the

decay of our culture, and

includes an essay by the founder

of the Church of Satan, much

about the supposedly secret role

that the Freemasons play in the

political arena, and the

connection between the atomic

bomb and mysticism.

This book isn't for everyone,

particularly not the faint of
heart because of some of the

photos included. However, I
found it interesting, if

disturbing, reading. Highly

recommended for people who think

the world's going to hell in a

handbasket, or just like to read

material about the outer fringes

of society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy and intriguing 18 Dec 2012
By Charles TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a collection of magazine length articles about alternative culture opinions about the world.

Examples of the stuff in this book: an interview with a female necrophiliac, was Wilhelm Reich a victim of a conspiracy to silence his discovery that radiation is harmful, weird letters sent to magazines, a collection of pro eugenics quotes from sources such as Aldous Huxley and lots of other strange things.

Some of the stuff here is quite crazy but a lot of it made me stop and think.

This is one of the interesting books I have ever read and a must read for people that like strange things.
