It has been an extraordinary century, a remarkable escalation of skills and knowledge to round off the second millennium. But has the human soul evolved? Surrounded by an encasing novella by the master metaphysician Clive Barker, Millennium explores the workings of the human heart in the ten decades that comprise the twentieth century: from the death of the American West, through the rise of the Third Reich, to the rock-and-roll years of the seventies and the mass culture of the nineties.
