In the Wake of the Plague by Norman F. Cantor

In the Wake of the Plague

The Black Death and the World It Made

by Norman F. Cantor

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 20 Min.


Much of what we know about the greatest medical disaster ever, the Black Plague of the fourteenth century, is wrong. The details of the Plague etched in the minds of terrified schoolchildren – the hideous black welts, the high fever, and the final, awful end by respiratory failure – are more or less accurate. But what the Plague really was, and how it made history, remain shrouded in a haze of myths.

Norman Cantor, the premier historian of the Middle Ages, draws together the most recent scientific discoveries and groundbreaking historical research to pierce the mist and tell the story of the Black Death afresh, as a gripping, intimate narrative.
