About the book:

According to the author, we are in the midst of a monumental cultural change that will end the world as we know it. This, he maintains, is as a result of an increasingly powerful force of our collective unconscious, a force he calls "the apocalypse achetype". This archetype is manifesting itself with an intensity not seen since the fall of the Greco-Roman empire. With this book, he constructs a Jungian interpretation of the Bible's "Book of Revelation", and offers his view of the meanings of images that have intrigued our culture for over 2000 years. Within this context, he explores contemporary issues such as the violence of communities, the psychological meaning of AIDS, and the increase of terrorism. He argues that by understanding the symbolism of the "Book of Revelation" in modern terms and assimilating it as a psychological document one can grasp the unconscious currents of the present, guide future expectations, and find the meaning needed to ensure the impending uncertainty and fear of change.
