Description
 
An intriguing & highly readable addition to the literature of one of humankind’s most basic emotions. Nightmares about the end of the world have always plagued humanity, but the particular horrors of the modern age, from the trenches to mass extermination & the nuclear-inspired fears of the 1950s onwards, were a poignant contrast to the widespread optimism of the early 1900s. This important, enthralling & critically acclaimed book charts the change in our fears over the course of the long 20th century. Contents: worlds of doom; spheres of uncertainty; whorls of irrationality; zones of confrontation; realms of anxiety: & terror.  “As topical as your morning newspaper.” “Clever, original & complex.” Black & white photos & illustrations.
