"The Great Thousand Years," contains two essays. The title essay, written in 1908, and published in England in 1910, is a prophecy of the catastrophic breakdown of civilization, a breakdown foreseen by Dr. Cram when it was generally least foreseen. He prophesied what has since happened by means of his interesting theory of the rhythm of history, a postulate, that so far back as we can measure, civilization's tides ebb and flow in periods of five hundred years. The second paper, "Ten Years After," discusses certain changes, moral and spiritual, that must be effected if we are to escape - in the author's opinion - a second era of Dark Ages. He writes that the world must be remade upon the basic idea of "Communal life conceived in the human scale." There must be a larger "unity without the surrender of independence and autonomy."
