'For much of the twentieth century political belief and practice seemed to be dominated by great secular visions that competed in their promise of a better world in the future. That now seems like a distant memory. The greatest conflicts around the world today all seem directly inspired by differences in religious belief. Images of worlds other than this one are driving political consciousness and action. The beauty of this collection lies in showing from an array of fascinating angles how much geopolitical competition in preparation for a transcendent world has now replaced historical becoming as the leitmotif of world politics.' John Agnew, University of California, Los Angeles, USA 'Sturm and Dittmer have brought together a range of specific analyses that speak to a wide set of issues. The studies range from elite discourses to popular culture and from theoretical engagements to detailed empirical work. Challenging, powerful and disturbing, this is a much needed volume on a pressing geopolitical concern.' Stuart Elden, Durham University, UK 'The collected essays are informative and often fascinating.' Journal of Church and State 'The volume's strength is that it critiques how eschatolo-gies are deployed as a means to attain the secular ends of nation-building at the expense of nonexceptional others.' Annals of the Association of American Geographers

You just never know what you're going to get when reading a book about future events. This one is not the one. I admit I didn't finish it, I couldn't it was so bad.

I tried to read this book because it was a gift and because of my interest in end time events. The writers are obviously very smart persons. But the use of 25 cent words that are hard to understand versus 5 cent words that communicate make the reading a tedious chore. Long paragraphs with 25 cent words is the formula for failure to communicate except for those already familiar with the subject. Example: "This chapter is concerned with these geopolitical power relations as they are aligned with American foreign policy mappings of the world and how the changing geopolitical themes present in the dispensationalist writings of Cold War evangelical authors Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye, and John Walvoord are reterritorialized by post-Cold War evangelical authors Joel Rosenberg, Mark Hitchcock and Charles Dyer" page 134
