Beyond the End of the World - 2012 and apocalypse

eBook (PDF), 222 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $7.77
First published in 2010, Will Black's entertaining book successfully cut through the rampant misinformation that circulated in the run-up to the Mayan cycle end-date. It was one of the few books about 2012 that did not push beliefs or distort facts and, as a result, became regarded as one of the most coherent on the subject. As well as exploring 2012 beliefs, Black's book examines the pervasiveness of apocalyptic ideas in religions and cults of all sizes, and within modern politics and culture. It also highlights many of the real challenges facing contemporary Mayan communities, including gang warfare in Central American countries.

    Having read several books on 2012 it was refreshing to read one that wasn't just about the author and wasn't totally bizarre. Will Black looks at the mayan 2012 end date, and millenarianism in general, from religious, cultural, historical and contempary perspectives, and writes with a clear, occasionally humerous, journalistic style. The books strongest points for me are how multiple religious perspectives are considered and compared, and the fact that it considers modern day mayans and the violence they are caught up in. A really good book that's detailed without being too heavy.
