Summary
"Aveni traces the sources of American culture's obsession with predicting the apocalypse. He explores why Americans take millennial claims seriously, where and how end-of-the-world predictions emerge, how they develop with reference to a broader historical trajectory, and what we can learn from doomsday predictions of the past"--
