Richard Abanes earns his living as an investigative reporter specializing in cults, the occult, world religions, and new religious movements. Now, in End-Time Visions, he focuses on the gathering storm before the new millennium: society's ever-present obsession with the end of the world. A detailed, fascinating look at the bizarre workings of the human mind, End-Time Visions take a broad approach to the topic. Citing historical precedents from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Abanes discusses in detail the myriad popular doomsday prophets that have sprung up in America as well as in the chaos of the new Russia, and many other international movements.
