Product description


"Interesting and informative...a fascinating brief history of a powerful but often hidden thread in Western ways of thought" (Economist)

"The aim of Apocalypses is to understand rather than condemn, and in this Weber succeeds brilliantly. A scholar who writes with a light touch, he has illuminated an important swathe of history which most respectable historians tend to neglect" (John Gross Mail on Sunday)

"Written with the erudition and lucidity for which Eugen Weber is famous...a stimulating book" (Roger Scruton The Times)

"An upbeat look at the end of the world...a fascinating and stylish book" (Jonathan Sale Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
