The Rough GuideBook - 1998
As the year 2000 approaches, the world is gearing up for the biggest party of the century. How will it affect you? Where's the best place to party? And what does it all mean? Now in one handy package is everything you need to know about the coming millennium.
Part One explains the basics: where the sun will first rise on the new century, the intricacies of the Millennium Time Bomb, the meaning of pre-millennial angst.
Part Two is a guide to happenings around the world: celebrations and parties, pilgrimages and festivals, millennium projects and mega-events.
Part Three is a guide to the mushrooming subcultures of the millennial age: cults, visionaries, eco-prophets, futurists and UFO freaks, peace groups, doomsday sects, right-wing militias, and others with high expectations about what the year 2000 will bring.
This Rough Guide also features a history of millennium movements, details on travel packages, and a glossary of the best Web sites -- all in a pocket-size package at an unbeatable price.
