St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX has selected Max Brook’s World War Z as their freshman studies common text for the Fall 2012 semester. All incoming freshmen for the upcoming school year will be reading this book and discussing… The Zombie War.
The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the world, from decimated cities to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and children who came face-to-face with the living and undead hell of that time. World War Z is the result, a document that conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance.
