Slavin, Renaissance Quarterly Ò[T]his superb synthesis will surely stand out . . .[It is] beautifully written, soundly researched, and highly knowledgeable.Ó ÑBook Review Ò. . . thoroughly engrossing . . . an excellent introductionÓ ÑLibraries and Culture ÒLively and clear enough for undergraduates; sophisticated and analytical enough for mature scholars.ÓÑDonald Weinstein, University of Arizona A work of genuine social history, After the Black Death leads the reader, as concretely as possible, into the real villages and cities of European society. The book begins with a description of family and community structure, social conflict, and religious beliefs. Once the fundamental traits of both rural and urban society are noted, it considers the elites, armed rebellion, poverty, criminality, sexual behavior, and marriage practices. For this second edition, George Huppert has added a new chapter on the incessant warfare that was characteristic of this age and on its transformation by the new commercial capitalism. He has also thoroughly revised and updated the bibliographical essay. Interdisciplinary Studies in History, Harvey J. Graff, General Editor

Have you ever wondered how much that guy with the cardboard sign makes? One economics student did and he decided to find out. During the summer of his senior year at college, while earning a B.A. in Economics and Political Science, David P. Spears spent eighty hours undercover as a panhandler. Systematically recording every transaction at the exit ramp, Spears captured a rarely seen picture of how modern urban charity works. This book is the record of his adventures, part economic research, part investigative journalism. Both the numbers and the stories behind the numbers provide answers to the questions we've all been wondering: Who gives more to panhandlers-men or women? What percentage of drivers roll down their windows to donate? And most important of all, how much can a panhandler earn per hour? Get out your bi-weekly pay stub-by the end of this book you'll know if you make more or less than the guy with the cardboard sign.
