Blog: Zombie History
This is a list of all zombie attacks throughout history in the book The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks. Each link will take you to Zombiepedia.
George A. Romero’s work is the first notable use of the zombie as an explicit comparison to a human consumer-driven society, and therefore his work – and not the origin of the fictional zombie itself – begins the canon.
In order to understand zombies it is important to know their origins.

I will conclude with a discussion on the psychology of zombies.
