Description

This collections of six papers originates from a symposium, held at the Institute of Historical Research in March 1992, on Epidemic Disease in London from the Black Death to Cholera. The essays included reflect the diversity of approaches discussed at the symposium and those currently being adopted in studying the relationship between disease and society. The collection, which both sets out the findings of on-going research projects and tries to outline some of the central methodological and historical concerns for future investigations, will be of value for the established scholar and the student embarking on new research into the history of epidemic disease.

Contents: 'Plague in London: spatial and temporal aspects of mortality' (Dr Graham Twigg); 'Discourses of the plague in early modern London' (Margaret Healy); 'Epidemics and the built environment in 1665' (Dr Justin Champion); 'Burial of the plague dead in early modern London' (Dr Vanessa Harding); 'The medical response to epidemic disease during the long eighteenth-century' (Dr Anne Hardy); 'Epidemics and skeletal populations: problems and limitations' (Dr Margaret Cox). A consolidated bibliography of published works cited by the authors also includes a selection of other works on epidemics and disease in London.
