Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The documents in this fascinating volume focus on the "contagion of rebellion" that followed the Black Death, which ravaged Europe in the years between 1355 and 1382. They comprise a diversity of sources and cover a variety of forms of popular protest in different social, political and economic settings. Their authors include revolutionaries, the artistocracy, merchants and representatives from the church. Of more than 200 documents presented here, most have been translated into English for the first time, providing students and scholars with a new opportunity to compare social movements across Europe over two centuries.

Book News Annotation:

The 204 documents Cohn (medieval history, U. of Glasgow) has selected extend from 1245 to 1424, but concentrate on what was called a contagion of revolts following the Black Death about 1355-82. Among them are chronicles, songs, poems, ordinances, laws, deliberations of city councils, royal remissions of grace, judicial records, family diaries, and even an art commission. A major goal is to assess the impact of the plague on popular protest. Distributed in the US by Palgrave.
