"La guerra" is a collection of short texts by Ana María Shua that closely observe the phenomenon of war in its most varied forms. The work leaves no stone unturned, examining everything from trenches to alien invasions, the Crusades to the Geneva Convention, Sun Tzu to the Bible, Mata Hari to Aztec warriors, the bow and arrow to biological attacks, and more. The result is a chilling panorama of the ways humanity has resolved conflicts since its inception.
