Did the Black Death destroy medieval Europe? Did cholera pave the way for modern Manhattan? Did yellow fever help end the slave trade? Remarkably, the answer to all of these questions is yes. Time and again, diseases have impacted the course of human history in surprisingly powerful ways. From influenza to small pox, from tuberculosis to yellow fever, Bryn Barnard describes the symptoms and paths of the world's worst diseases-and how the epidemics they spawned have changed history forever. Filled with fascinating, often gory details about disease and history, Outbreak! is an exciting nonfiction book for middle graders that's just right for the Common Core, and now available in paperback. A wonderful combination of science and history, in the spirit of such adult hits as the classics Guns, Germs, and Steel and Rats, Lice and History, this is a book to pour over.
