The Black DeathBook - 1999
Bracketed by explorations of previous and modern plagues, six essays describe the 14th-century ravages from such perspectives as epidemiology, the death toll, the medical response, social controls, the flagellants, and the ever popular blaming the Jews. Another three look at the ongoing impact on economics and the population, education, agriculture, architecture, and the church. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
