This is a classic study of a disease which had a profound impact on the history of Tudor and Stuart England. Plague was both a personal affliction and a social calamity, regularly decimating urban populations. Paul Slack vividly describes the stresses which plague imposed on individuals,families, and whole communities, and the ways in which people tried to explain, control, and come to terms with it.
Paul Slack is at Exeter College, Oxford.
