9780752429632: Plague (Black Death & Pestilence in Europe)

The Black Death first hit Europe in 1347, ripping through towns, villages, and families. Men, women, children, young and old succumbed to a painful, drawn-out death as pustules, abscesses, and boils erupted all over their bodies. Subsequent attacks of the disease, coming almost every decade, so limited the population that it was not until the 18th century that it managed to surpass the levels of the 1340s. For over 300 years, Europeans were stalked by death. In the end, this mysterious disease that had terrorized, terrified, and killed millions, disappeared as inexplicably as it had appeared.

From the Publisher:

The Black Death first hit Europe in 1347. This horrific disease ripped through towns, villages and families. Men, women, children, young and old succumbed to a painful, drawn–out death as pustules, abscesses and boils erupted all over their bodies. Subsequent attacks of the disease, coming almost every decade, so limited the population that it was not until the eighteenth century that it managed to surpass the levels of the 1340s. For over three hundred years, Europeans were stalked by death. In the end, this mysterious disease that had terrorized, terrified and killed millions, disappeared as inexplicably as it had appeared.

William Naphy is Senior Lecturer and Head of History at the University of Aberdeen. His other books include Born to be Gay and Sex Crimes, both published by Tempus.

Andrew Spicer is Research Fellow at the University of Exeter. His next book, London’s Pariahs: Lepers, Jews & Outcasts before the Enlightenment, will also be published by Tempus.
