Rate this:
By some estimates, as many as 50 million Americans believe the Apocalypse is near. The author, a historian and psychoanalyst, takes a look at some such believers living in New York City. For five years, he conducted interviews from East Harlem to the Upper East Side, focusing on Christian fundamentalists. Case studies illuminate how individuals from different classes and races who share experiences of great pain in their lives are brought to the point of not only believing in the world's end, but actively anticipating it.
