Questioning the Millennium: A Rationalist's Guide to a Precisely Arbitrary Countdown (Paperback)

£14.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Gould addresses three questions about the millennium with his typical erudition, warmth, and whimsy: What is the concept of a millennium and how has its meaning shifted over time? How did the projection of Christ's 1,000-year reign become a secular measure? And when exactly does the millennium begin--January 1, 2000, or January 2, 2001?
