Publishers Description: History's Worst Predictions peels back the layers of history to expose the credulity and absurdity of humanity's prophetic utterances. Every aspect of human life - religion, politics, science, economy, culture and war - has provided material for the most far-fetched and inaccurate of predictions. Organised chronologically from Antiquity to modern times and beyond, chapters include: * The 'First' Second Coming: Saints Mark, Matthew, Luke and Paul * Plagiarist Prophet: Nostradamus * Historical Imperative: Karl Marx * Man of Peace: Neville Chamberlain * All Shook Up: Variety Magazine This beautifully illustrated, full-colour volume contains photographs and maps that bring each chapter to life, depicting the people and institutions responsible for some of the most infamous predictions in human history.
