Life During the Black Death

by John M. Dunn

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Dunn documents the plague from its origins around 1320 in Mongolia to its spread to the Muslim World and later to Italy and north to France and England. He relates the devastating effects it had on the populations of Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, killing between 25 to 40% of the population in some communities. The author also details the effects of the Black Death on the lives of 14th-century Europeans who didn't die and the subsequent social, political, economic, and intellectual changes it brought. Sidebars highlight period commentary and black-and-white reproductions illustrate the text. James Giblin's When Plague Strikes (HarperCollins, 1995) provides more scientific information on this and other epidemics.-Debbie Feulner, Northwest Middle School, Greensboro, NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
