"Adam Hochschild is the rare historian who fuses deep scholarship with novelistic flair. In his hands, World War I becomes a clash not only of empires and armies, but of individuals: king and Kaiser, warriors and pacifists, coal miners and aristocrats. Epic yet human-scaled, this is history for buffs and novices alike, a stirring and provocative exploration of the Great War and the nature of war itself". Tony Horwitz, author of A voyage long and strange
"In prose as compelling as a masterful novel, Hochschild illuminates the lives of those who consigned millions to oblivion, and also introduces us to those who fiercely opposed the carnage—those who imagined, as we might, that the world could be otherwise. We emerge from this exemplary book with the knowledge that war is not inevitable, and those who work for its abolition inherit their dedication from sane men and women of great moral strength who recognized, as we must, that the future depended upon them. Hochschild’s accomplishment, as a writer and historian, is formidable and inspiring." Carolyn Forché, editor of Against Forgetting: 20th Century Poetry of Witness
Adam Hochschild has written for The New Yorker, Harper's, The New York Review of Books, Granta, The New York Times Magazine, and many other newspapers and magazines. In King Leopold’s Ghost, Bury the chains, and other books, Hochschild has earned a reputation as a master of suspense and vivid character portrayal. His skill at evoking such struggles for justice has made him a finalist for the National Book Award and won him a host of other prizes.

Tony Horwitz opina sobre Midnight Rising: John Brown and the Raid that Sparked the Civil War.
Plotted in secret and launched in the dark, John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry was a pivotal moment in U.S. history. Few Americans know the true story of the men and women who launched the strike at the slaveholding South. Now, Midnight Rising reveals Brown's uprising that stunned the nation and prompted a counterattack led by Robert E. Lee. After Brown’s capture, his defiant eloquence galvanized the North and appalled the South, which considered him a terrorist. The raid also helped elect Abraham Lincoln, who later began to fulfill Brown's dream with the Emancipation Proclamation, a measure he called "a John Brown raid, on a gigantic scale." Tony Horwitz is the bestselling author of A Voyage Long and Strange, Blue Latitudes, and Baghdad Without a Map. He won the Pulitzer Prize-winning for Confederates in the Attic, and has worked for the Wall Street Journal and the New Yorker. (jasbro)… (más)
