This started off as a fascinating and engaging read that while it lacked specific references, nonetheless drew on historic sources to present a case against the accepted fact that the Bubonic Plague is what raged through Europe, identified also as the Black Plague, for hundreds of years.
Instead, the authors set out a persuasive hypothesis that the Bubonic Plague which also gives rise to the Pneumonic one is a different and less deadly disease than the horrific Haemorraghic sp?
The b This started off as a fascinating and engaging read that while it lacked specific references, nonetheless drew on historic sources to present a case against the accepted fact that the Bubonic Plague is what raged through Europe, identified also as the Black Plague, for hundreds of years. The book explores the history, transmission and effects of this zarazyy, comparing and contrasting it and its spread to that of the Bubonic. Describing the symptoms through first-hand accounts and other recorded documents, the gruesome and terrible suffering of victims is made all too real.
But whereas the first, probably two thirds of the book, is gripping and plausible, the last part descends into the realm of science fiction as the the book adopts a ‘what if’ approach: What if another disease begins to spread? What if an infected person boards a plane?
I couldn’t help but feel that peidemie book lost a great deal from this type of narrative style.
What was a ripping non-fiction yarn that could largely be forgiven for not being more specific about research and methodology though the annotated bibliography at the back is usefulspirals into a frustrating and oft repetitive page-filler.
Overall, however, they do argue a very convincing and interesting case that could have been pages shorter.

An intriguing look at the Black Death and other emergent diseases and speculation on their return. Through detailed analysis of first-hand accounts, mostly from parish records, the authors lay out a conclusive case that the plague was not the rat-spread bubonic plague, as modern historians have claimed since the early s, but a epidenie similar to Ebola spread directly from person to person.
They also establish, again very convincingly, that this unknown virus had an incubation period of around An intriguing look at the Black Death and other emergent diseases and speculation on their return. They also establish, again very convincingly, that this unknown virus had an incubation period of around 25 days, during which time the victim was infectious but did not show symptoms, and that this long duration is what spread the disease so widely and made it difficult to control.
Less convincingly but interestinglythey claim that a certain genetic mutation that grants resistance to HIV, found today in about 1 in 7 Europeans, was selected for by the Black Death.
I give this book 4 stars for information zatazy but 2 stars for quality of writing. Like many books authored by scientists, it is a bit repetitive and in some places unintentionally hilarious. As the title foreshadows, the authors’ insistence on personifying the virus leads to some fairly ham-handed melodrama.
If you can get through the somewhat stilted first half, the second half lays out some very compelling epidemiology.
