Reseña del editor:

"Anyone who thinks that South Africa's problems began with the Afrikaners and apartheid should read this book." -Richard Dowden, The Independent "...should remain the last word for the foreseeable future." -Choice "Peires is the premier historian of the Xhosa people. He speaks the language, knows the terrain, has collected oral traditions and has made an exhaustive study of the documented sources. The result is a fascinating and authoritative account of this astonishing catastrophe...The Dead Will Arise is fine scholarship and a good read. " -The Washington Post, Book World " [Peires] has done a splendid job, combining a narrative of epic tragic sweep with a deep grasp of the Xhosa language and society...this is a powerfully wrought work, one of the best in recent years on a precolonial South African people..." -African Studies Review "...The Dead Will Arise is remarkable for its clarity and accessibility...It is bold, imaginative challenge to an orthodoxy which has persisted for one hundred and thirty years. The sophistication and scope of its analysis and its breath-taking literary style qualify The Dead Will Arise for the accolade 'brilliant.' " -International Journal of African Historical Studies "...gripping reading. It is now one hundred and thirty years since the tragic events of the Xhosa Cattle-Killing and yet this book is the very first thoroughly researched and authoritative account ever to be written on the subject." -Journal of Religion in Africa "One of the great strengths of this study is the rich biographical material that Peires provides on the various personalities involved in the incident." -American Historical Review Drawing on private letters, spy reports, oral traditions, and obscure Xhosa texts, Peires explains for the first time the motivations which drove 100,000 Xhosa to kill their cattle, destroy their crops, and slowly starve to death-an extraordinary event that has defied historical explanation for over 130 years.

Contraportada:

The Dead Will Arise is a book written at two levels. It is both an exciting and gripping narrative and an extended analysis of the relation between religion and logic, the impact of extreme situations on human behavior. Anybody interested in Africa, in religion, or in the process of colonial domination will want to read and reread it.
