Apocalypse Cultureby Adam Parfrey
Synopses & Reviews
Two thousand years have passed since the death of Christ and the world is going mad. Nihilist prophets, born-again pornographers, transcendental schizophrenics and just plain folks are united in their belief in an imminent global catastrophe. What are the forces lurking behind this mass delirium?
Apocolypse Culture is a startling, absorbng and exhaustive tour through the nether regions of today's psychotic landscape.
"Parfrey has edited a new book of Revelation, a collection which is almost as awesome and terrifying as the original biblical text. NME
"Apocalypse Culture is compulsory reading for all those concerned with the crisis of our times. An extraordinary collection unlike anything I have ever encountered. These are the terminal documents of the twentieth century." J.G. Ballard
An unorthodox sociological approach to contemporary apocalyptic thought.
