520    Apocalyptic visions and prophesies from Zarathustra to 
       yesterday form the luxuriant panorama in Eugen Weber's 
       profound and elegant book. Beginning with the ancients of 
       the West and the Orient and, especially, with those from 
       whom we received our religions, the Jews and earliest 
       Christians, Weber finds that an absolute belief in the end
       of time, when good would do final battle with evil, was 
       omnipresent. From this more than two millennia history, he
       redresses the historical and religious amnesia that has 
       consigned the study of apocalypses and millennial thought 
       to the ash heap of thought and belief.
