Synopsis: The five novels of Manuel Scorza's La guerra silenciosa are self-contained, yet reading them in the order of their appearance enhances an appreciation of the saga's underlying thematic development. In this final volume, the Indian struggle, which began in the first book as a single-handed revolt against the despotism of Judge Montenegro, has evolved into a fully organized insurrection against the oppression by ruthless landowners and the powerful mining company of Cerro de Pasco. This novel also depicts the culmination of the gradual shift in the Indians' psyche from a mythical interpretation of events to a more realistic worldview.

About the Author: The Translator: Anna-Marie Aldaz, who received her Ph.D. in comparative literature from the University of Oregon, is Associate Professor of Spanish at Northern Arizona University in Yuma. Besides co-authoring Poems, a book-length translation of Rosalía de Castro's poetry, she has published a monograph on Manuel Scorza, The Past of the Future: The Novelistic Cycle of Manuel Scorza (Peter Lang, 1990), and translations of three of his novels, Garabombo, the Invisible (Peter Lang, 1994), The Sleepless Rider (Peter Lang, 1996), and The Ballad of Agapito Robles (Peter Lang, 1999).
