This book 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. 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.

Review:

This is a harrowing and compelling book. It is an exceptionally fine piece of social history; a sensitive, mature and deeply humane exploration of a social problem and its consequences for social history of the period. (Keith Wrightson, Times Literary Supplement)

I have read this book with pleasure and admiration: pleasure in the rich and interesting detail; admiration for a scholarly work on an important subject of English social history. (Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Times)

Paul Slack has written the definitive social history of Tudor and Stuart plague. (Times Higher Education Supplement)
