The Great Famine:
Northern Europe in the Early Fourteenth Century
William Chester Jordan

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Superb detective work, as all good historical research should be, it is well organized, fast moving, and above all else, persuasive. Jordan spins a horrifying tale, dealing, in turn, with the nature of the calamity and how it affected the nobility, peasants, and townfolk--starvation, disease, displacement, and death.... Yes, this is true scholarship, but also a riveting tale as well."--The Virginia Quarterly Review
