“Anxiety about the impending millennium has wreaked havoc on the way we see ourselves and our world as evidenced by bizarre notions running the gamut from alien invasions from outer space to the apocalyptic coming of the Christ. Dreams Of Millennium: Report From A Culture On The Brink is an attempt to ease that anxiety and guide us through the remaining years of the millennium. Witty and informative, Dreams Of Millennium dissects our fears and our culture as its author shows how anxiety has been present at the end of every century, how it is magnified because of the millennium, and how it manifests itself in our everyday lives from popular entertainments like “The X-Files” to anti-Christ hysterias among religious “true believers”. In Dreams Of Millennium, much of our daily lives is a proven sign of our subconscious worries about what exactly will happen with the 20th century comes to a close. Mark Kingwell’s accurate observations about contemporary society are sure to ease any fears that we are about to be annihilated by some cataclysmic force or event tied to the ushering in of a new millennium.” — James A.
