Nohls volume is unique for its geographical and historical scope as well as its combination of detailed accounts and overarching contemporary views of the plague, a disease that claimed nearly forty million people during the fourteenth century alone. With current concerns about pandemics, The Black Death provides lessons on how humans reacted to and survived catastrophic loss of life to disease.
