About the book:

The influence that disease has had on history has often been hidden behind the more 'glorious' exploits of individuals and monarchs. The periods discussed reach from Biblical accounts of epidemics, through the Justinian plague, the Plague (the scourge of medieval Europe)... malaria, yellow fever, small pox, typhus and cholera, through to the present day of the 1976 influenza epidemic.

Author RS Bray offers a comprehensive evaluation of many other works, both scientific and historical which provide a vast basis for research on this subject. His vigorous style and timely injections of humor make this an absorbing and accessible book.
