Item Description...
Jonestown, Waco, and Heaven's Gate resonate in the contemporary mind in the same way that Masada or Mount Tabor resonated in the minds of others long past. The members of these movements believed that the end of the world was at hand and that they had to act through violence or suicide to ensure its occurrence. Frederic Baumgartner explores the long, often violent, history of millennialism as it has affected Western civilization. From ancient Zoroastrians to Concerned Christians of 1998, a belief in the imminent end of the world and the coming of the new age has motivated hundreds of sects and cults, some of which have burned out in an orgy of violence to become a permanent part of Western history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Introduction  Nov 9, 2008
Frederic J. Baumgartner offers a very readable introduction to the history of millennialism in the West. I have now read a fair number of such histories. What makes Baumgartner's different is that, apart from providing the familiar history (which touches on outbreaks of millennialism from the birth of Christianity through the Cold War and Waco), it offers lots of original observations along the way. Nitpickers will notice a few errors in dates or small facts in the book. Scholars of the history of millennialism may also quibble with Baumgartner's interpretation of particular periods and events. However, on the whole, it's a strong and very accessible contribution.
