For almost 3 000 years apocalypse prophecies have convinced people all over the world that the future is about to give them the world they want instead of the world theyve got.

All the end time prophecies splashed across the media in every age have had something else in common: every one of them has been wrong. Apocalypse Not is a lively and engaging survey of predictions about the end of the world along with the failed dreams and nightmares that have clustered around them. Among the stories highlighted in Apocalypse Not are: the birth of the apocalypse meme out of archaic star myths in the ancient Middle East- the failed end time prophecies of Nostradamus Mother Shipton and other famous prophets- the long and murky road from the Great Pyramid to todays Rapture beliefs- and the real origins of the belief in apocalypse in 2012 (hint: its not originally Mayan at all).
