About the Book
The work focuses on two of the most devastating phenomena ever suffered by the European population. The deadly plague known as “Black Death” spread in late 1340s while the “Dancing Mania” persisted from the 13th to 17th century where throngs of people suffered from a psychological problem. An analysis of both these maladies that shook the foundations of European society has been presented here.
