Editorial Reviews


"Cohn uncovers interesting historical connections between millennial ideas and their use in furthering revolutionary movements started by the engine of social unrest."--The Catholic World


"Cohn's book is even more relevant today. He has added a conclusion relating [these movements in medieval Europe] to the contemporary scene....The mirage of a secularized millennium now appeals, he considers, both to the 'disoriented and desperate' in underdeveloped countries, and to an equally disoriented minority on the fringes of the social democratic state."--Times Literary Supplement


"A work of the first water...of great originality and power."--Sir Isaiah Berlin, Twentieth Century


"As valuable as it is interesting...full of historical facts which are passed over in silence in most histories."--Bertrand Russell


"Now we can understand the origins of twentieth century idiologies."--Dr. Wayne Allen, Delta State University
