History's Worst Predictions is a lighthearted look at fifty of the grandest predictions the world has seen – and how they proved to be spectacularly wrong. Every aspect of human life – religion, politics, science, economy, culture and war – has provided material for the most far-fetched and inaccurate of predictions. The book asks why we are still here, given that the end of the world has been foretold over 200 times, including: for 1833 by William Miller, who claimed to be in direct contact with God, and for 1997 by Nostradamus, king of the poor prediction. 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.
