Publisher's Synopsis

The predictions of the sixteenth-century French astrologer Nostradamus have long proved captivating. He has been credited with anticipating the Great Fire of London, the rise of Adolf Hitler, and the September 11 terrorist attacks. Today, as the world grapples with financial meltdowns, global terrorism, and environmental disasters-as well as the Mayan prediction of the apocalypse on December 21, 2012-his prophecies of doom have assumed heightened relevance. A revelatory new translation with the original French on facing pages, this edition also features extensive introductory and supplementary material, all helping to illuminate the cultural, political, and historical forces that resonate throughout Nostradamus's epic and give it its visionary power.
