Where are we at the turn of the millennium? In contrast to the current mood of millennial pessimism, the authors take an optimistic view of human history. Surveying the 20,000 years from the end of the last ice age to 7,000 AD, this ambitious book is part history, part current events, and part science fiction. It takes issue with those who say we are seeing the 'decline of the West' or a looming 'clash of civilisations'. What is truly important about our age only becomes apparent when we see the present both as a product of the past and as the maker of the future. The authors take a long look back at our real history, and an equally long look back at our present from various points in the future. They conclude that the human story, with all of its ups and downs, is basically one of progress, and that our own time is a major turning point.
