From accounts of the Holocaust, to representations of AIDS, to predictions of environmental disaster; from Hal Lindsey's fundamentalist 1970s bestseller The Late Great Planet Earth, to Francis Fukuyama's The End of History and the Last Man in 1992, the sense of apocalypse is very much with us. In Postmodern Apocalypse, Richard Dellamora and his contributors examine apocalypse in works by late twentieth-century writers, filmmakers, and critics.

Richard Dellamora is Professor of English and Cultural Studies at Trent University, Canada. He is author of Radcliffe Hall: A Life in the Writing and Friendship's Bonds: Democracy and the Novel in Victorian England and editor of Postmodern Apocalypse: Theory and Cultural Practice at the End, all available from the University of Pennsylvania Press.
