View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Responding to a plethora of media representing end times, this anthology of essays examines pop culture’s fascination with end of the world or apocalyptic narratives. Essays discuss films and made-for-television movies – including Deep Impact, The Core, and The Day After Tomorrow – that feature primarily [hu]man-made catastrophes or natural catastrophes. These representations complement the large amount of mediated literature and films on religious perspectives of the apocalypse, the Left Behind series, and other films/books that deal with prophecy from the Book of Revelation in the Bible. This book will be useful in upper-level undergraduate/graduate courses addressing mass media, film and television studies, popular culture, rhetorical criticism, and special/advanced topics. In addition, the book will be of interest to scholars and students in disciplines including anthropology, history, psychology, sociology, and religious studies.
