Are we coming to the end of a cosmic cycle? Will there be an age of awakening, or even an end to the world we know? For the first time, the leading authorities on the 2012 phenomenon are all given voice in a single book: The Mystery of 2012.

From the prophecies of the Mayan astronomers to modern predictions about social, ecological, and spiritual changes to our world, this comprehensive anthology offers you a chance to examine the mystery from every angle—and to decide for yourself whether 2012 will end with a whimper or a bang.
