Slavin, Renaissance Quarterly Ò[T]his superb synthesis will surely stand out . . .[It is] beautifully written, soundly researched, and highly knowledgeable.Ó ÑBook Review Ò. . . thoroughly engrossing . . . an excellent introductionÓ ÑLibraries and Culture ÒLively and clear enough for undergraduates; sophisticated and analytical enough for mature scholars.ÓÑDonald Weinstein, University of Arizona A work of genuine social history, After the Black Death leads the reader, as concretely as possible, into the real villages and cities of European society. The book begins with a description of family and community structure, social conflict, and religious beliefs. Once the fundamental traits of both rural and urban society are noted, it considers the elites, armed rebellion, poverty, criminality, sexual behavior, and marriage practices. For this second edition, George Huppert has added a new chapter on the incessant warfare that was characteristic of this age and on its transformation by the new commercial capitalism. He has also thoroughly revised and updated the bibliographical essay. Interdisciplinary Studies in History, Harvey J. Graff, General Editor
