Epidemics and Pandemics: Their Impacts on Human History

This book intends to provide accurate, up-to-date historical information about fifty significant epidemics and pandemics. It is important for readers to understand that the book is a work of historical, not medical, reference—I am a historian, not a physician.
It is arranged chronologically, so that the first chapter concerns an epidemic of the fifth century B.C.E. and the last chapters discuss several contemporary pandemics. Each chapter presents its information in a consistent format that allows the reader to gain information about the time, place, and scale of the epidemic, its significance, the background against which it occurred, how contemporaries understood and responded to it, and issues that remained unresolved about it then, or have remained so since. Each chapter concludes with references and suggested readings, both of which are good sources for those who wish to learn more about the epidemic.
