The great mortality : an intimate history of the Black Death by John Kelly ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 138 libraries worldwide
"The Great Mortality is John Kelly's narrative account of the medieval plague, from its beginnings on the desolate, windswept steppes of Central Asia to its journey through the teeming cities of Europe." "The Great Mortality also looks at new theories about the cause of the plague and takes into account why some scientists and historians believe that the Black Death was an outbreak not of bubonic plague, but of another infectious illness - perhaps anthrax or a disease like Ebola. Interweaving a modern scientific methodical analysis with portrait of medieval medicine, superstition, and bigotry, The Great Mortality achieves an air of immediacy, authenticity, and intimacy never before seen in literature on the plague."--BOOK JACKET.
