  • What If? Jun 26, 2007
    by Mikmaq

    What if the Black Plague had not happened? Or, what if Tsar Nicholas's son did not have hemophilia? Cartwright does not attempt to answer these questions, but he does an excellent job at describing how the course of civilization did change as a result of disease. From pandemics, to individual madness, to mass hysteria, he recounts how these were turning points in history. This is a very readable book!
