Review

"This remarkable, ambitious book by a new, young historian is positive about the new society that survived disaster." The Times "Benedict Gummer's highly impressive book charts the subsequent spread of the disease in meticulous and terrible detail." Sunday Telegraph Seven, Book of the Week "The Scourging Angel is an elegant and self-assured debut." The Telegraph Review "The enormous value of Gummer's book, for all its apparent narrowness of focus, is that it concentrates attention on the plague as an episode in the Hundred Years War and the new mercantilism that was opening up northern seas and nations to world trade - (a) fine book" The Herald "There are constant delights in this truly impressive work of narrative and interpretive history...the author ventures intelligently and convincingly. The Scourging Angel is full of hope, as well as of superior scholarship" Country Life
