As Terry Anderson says in his introduction to Millennium's End, ""There are a lot of phrases in Millennium's End that somebody needs to hear, and think about."
Michael Bugeja, author of 16 books of nonfiction,
fiction and poetry delivers his most stunning collection to date. The verses are powerful
and poignant, offering truths about ourselves, our attitudes and our time that we might
find not quite comfortable. It is, at once, a look back at how far we have come as a
society, and a fair warning as to how far we have yet to travel. Millennium's
End is, in short, a vibrant wakeup call for the 21st Century.

"Michael Bugeja brings to his visionary poetry an ingrained sense of the history of our century, an empathy for its victims of violence, domestic and political, and a love of forms that sing on the page and impress with their variety and skill. Millenniums End, a sharp-edged and accomplished book, deserves a wide and enthusiastic audience."
