The End of Time : Faith and Fear in the Shadow of the Millennium
by Damian Thompson, David, Md. Loxterkamp

"The end of yet another millennium is fast approaching, and all kinds of squirrelly people are coming out of the woodwork. Members of Aum Shinrikyo set off poisoned gas in Tokyo subways while members of Marshall Applewhite's Heaven's Gate bid farewell to this world via lethal pudding, headed for that great mother ship in the sky. Meanwhile, the whole world fearfully anticipates 2000--the year when computers everywhere will trigger mass confusion over the double zero and set us all back a century. Lest you think that our generation is alone in its end-of-the-millennium craziness, Damian Thompson has written a history of millenarianism through the ages."

 

UFO Cults and the New Millennium
by William M. Alnor

"Years before the Heavens Gate cult erupted into global notoriety through mass suicide, cult researcher William Alnor documented the absurdities of its beginnings in UFOs in the New Age. Now in UFO Cults and the New Millennium Alnor comprehensively describes the rise and fall of the Heavens Gate cult and its founders, Marshall H. Applewhite and Bonnie L. Trusdale Nettles. He then details the beliefs and activities of numerous similar cults - the Solar Temple cult, Aum Shinri Kyo, the Raelian Movement, and others bent on mass suicide or worldwide destruction. What causes such fanaticism? Will it lead to further devastating consequences? As Alnor answers these questions, he explains how UFO cults have developed and why so many of these groups exist today. He believes that one answer is a Hollywood-driven fascination with extraterrestrials and UFOs. Alnor shows that there is a frightening spiritual agenda behind such groups as Heavens Gate, and he offers evidence that more bizarre occurrences are likely as we enter the new millennium."
