Bubonic Plague in Early Modern Russia: Public Health and Urban Disaster

by

Bubonic Plague in Early Modern Russia: Public Health and Urban Disaster Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John T. Alexander's study dramatically highlights how the Russian people reacted to the Plague, and shows how the tools of modern epidemiology can illuminate the causes of the plague's tragic course through Russia. Bubonic Plauge in Early Modern Russia makes contributions to many aspects of Russian and European history: social, economic, medical, urban, demographic, and meterological. It is particularly enlightening in its discussion of eighteenth-century Russia's emergent medical profession and public health institutions and, overall, should interest scholars in its use of abundant new primary source material from Soviet, German, and British archives.
