In the Wake of the Plague: The Black Death and the World It Made
Publisher: Recorded Books
Date: August 2002
Duration: 6 hours 31 minutes
In this New York Times best-seller, Norman F. Cantor digs through the medical evidence and concludes that the Black Death of the 14th century was probably two diseases at once: bubonic plague and anthrax. He shows how these diseases affected the masses as well as individuals, and thus altered history. Concise, informative, and touched with dark humor, this book is a startlingly fresh view of a frightening epidemic.
