Public fears that the world will end on 21st December 2012 - and/or that a new world will then dawn - are currently widespread, and promise to reach panic levels by the autumn of 2012. Peter Lemesurier's 2012: IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD: The Truth About the Mayan Calendar addresses those fears directly, examining in detail the main titles from among the huge amount of doom-mongering literature on the subject (and virtually all of it is doom-mongering!)) and dismissing most of it for the nonsense it is. Surprisingly, thanks to a breakthrough in the decoding of the Mayan calendar, it is almost unique in doing so in any detail. Indeed, it concludes by wondering how the various prophets either of doom or of positive transformation will react when they discover that both they and their familiar world are still here in 2013, when they and their publishers will inevitably be starting to look rather foolish.

Peter Lemesurier, a former Cambridge linguist and professional translator, and widely regarded as the world's leading English-language Nostradamus expert, is the author of numerous works dedicated to solving the world's great mysteries. He has written nine published books on Nostradamus and three on the Great Pyramid and its alleged prophecies, one of them a world bestseller. His books have been translated into some dozen languages. Born in 1936, and with a Cambridge MA in Modern and Mediaeval Languages, he has enjoyed a varied experience of life as a professional musician, teacher, translator, author, trimaraner and (formerly) jet pilot. He has officially researched and appeared in numerous TV films and radio programmes, including productions by the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel and UK's Channel 4.

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...
