Free History BONUS Inside! The Black Death was the first recorded pandemic in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. All across the continent, people learned just how gruesome and horrific disease could be as the plague crossed the boundaries of countries and the lines established by society, killing everyone equally. It showed that no one—not even archbishops and kings—were immune from its grasp. The ferocity with which the plague swept across the continent, even reaching the shores of England, demonstrated how unprepared they were for something on such a large scale. It was the first time that a major disease would strike the continent after the fall of the Roman Empire, but it would not be the last. Over the next few centuries, the bubonic plague would return several times. Although it was incredibly deadly, it never again had the same catastrophic effect on the European population. People began to study it from a scientific perspective instead of the same superstitious angle or religious fatalism, making it possible to understand exactly what was causing the deaths. Today, those in the medical profession can easily treat the bubonic plague if they realize what it is early enough. With examples of the illness occurring in many nations during the last decade, including the US, the Black Death is not gone, but it is no longer the death sentence that it once was. In The Black Death: A Captivating Guide to the Deadliest Pandemic in Medieval Europe and Human History, you will discover topics such as The First Pandemics The Black Death The Unlikely Use of the Black Death Rumors and Arrival Perceptions Vs. The Reality The Ultimate Equalizer Stealing the Future – Princess Joan Decline of the Catholic Church and the Rise of Mysticism Art of the Black Death The First Quarantine and Successful Containment Beyond the Human Toll Lasting Effects on Europe’s Future And much, much more!

    A good intro into the Black Death if you're looking for a kind of "drive-by" recapturing of the history behind it. I was hoping for more heavy research since I'm reading this book for my own research purposes, but I did appreciate the links to all the other sources at the end!

    This book describes all of the main events leading up to the Black Death plague and then continues on up to the present day. It covers the first possible use of the plague as a biological weapon and goes on to tell of the problems resulting after the end of the plague. There was an interesting section regarding alternative versions of how the plague first spread to Europe which appears to be very plausible. The best bit for me was the great description of the 3 different types of plague and their This book describes all of the main events leading up to the Black Death plague and then continues on up to the present day. It covers the first possible use of the plague as a biological weapon and goes on to tell of the problems resulting after the end of the plague. There was an interesting section regarding alternative versions of how the plague first spread to Europe which appears to be very plausible. The best bit for me was the great description of the 3 different types of plague and their relationships with one another - as if one plague wasn't enough. A very interesting read.

    I have read a number of books on the Black Death. I found this one to be heavy-handed in its biases, arrogance, and editorializing.

    Too repetitive First off I enjoyed learning a little of the history of the Black Death. However, as an Englishman I’d have enjoyed learning how England was effected a little more then a mention in brackets. The history goes much further than this book tells and like I said it was too repetitive in that the author seemed to have a bundle of information and needed to stretch it out to call it a book. If you have no idea what the Black Death was then it’s a starter book. But like the book I repea Too repetitive First off I enjoyed learning a little of the history of the Black Death.

But like the book I repeat; Too repetitive and no history about England, it is a sad conclusion to what could have been a good book.

    ***** Extensive study of the disease, epidemiology, and social impact as it spread across the known world of the mid fourteenth century presented in a manner that does not require a degree in European history or medicine. Although I was familiar with some aspects of the disease itself and the deranged efforts to repel its inevitable advance, nowhere else have I been exposed to its impact on specific politics or the impact of the disease on domestic animals. Excellent presentation well worth the ***** Extensive study of the disease, epidemiology, and social impact as it spread across the known world of the mid fourteenth century presented in a manner that does not require a degree in European history or medicine.

    Enlightening The plague is an event in history that I find very fascinating. This book does an excellent job to demonstrate what it was, it’s devastating impact on the world how it impacted every aspect of society and how I still lives in the consciousness of people today. Easy to read, engaging, well researched and for the length of a novella an incredible amount of facts and detail.

    If you’ve ever read anything about The Plague you can skip this. Overly wordy without giving many facts or information. Maybe if you wanted to read about it for the first time it could be good but for me it’s a big NO

    Lockdown! I read this book during lockdown and it was an eye opener. There are so many similarities, especially with the BD originally coming from China and Europe being poorly prepared despite the warning.The solution: isolation and herd intolerance, sound familiar?

    Repetitive. And given its publication date of 2019 it already hasn't aged well in its references to how a potential "next" pandemic's response would play out in large parts of the world.

    Informative This was a well written book about one of the biggest calamities to ever happen. I never knew how much positive came from it until I read this book.

    I knew the Bubonic plaque was bad but didn't realize just how devastating it was. Made me think about the trickle down effect and the other problems it left in its wake.
