Describes symptoms and paths of deadly diseases that have impacted the course of human history. Explores how major medical events and plagues impacted society and forever changed the course of history, including a review of the black plague and its effects on the feudal system and yellow fever and its impact on the slave trade. Did the Black Death destroy the feudal system? 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. Highlighted with vivid and meticulously researched illustrations, Outbreak is a fascinating look at the hidden world of microbes-and how this world shapes human destiny every day.

This says it's a children's book, but I found it fascinating from an adult viewpoint. It covers many of the plagues that have stricken humanity, giving their history and steps taken to find cures. The author takes a liberal viewpoint that unless all levels of humanity can receive the same medical care when ill, these microbes will go on evolving and eventually kill us all. ( )

One Sentence Theme: Informational young adult text about how the world's worst diseases changed history.

Plot summary: Disease impacts history in powerful ways. This book explores the world's worst diseases including cholera, tuberculosis, yellow fever, Black Death, small pox, and influenza. An interesting combination of science and history for young adult readers with many gross facts to maintain interest.
Personal response: This book both fascinated and grossed me out! What I found most unique is the blend of how religion and racism actually prolonged these diseases.

Curriculum Connections: I could use this book for both history and science or health lessons.

I put this on hold at the library, not realizing this is was a children's non fiction book. Ah, well, my Intro to Library Science professor said "If you want to get basic information on a topic, start with a children's nonfiction book." So I gave this book a shot. The pictures are great in this book, and there is a lot of text covering 6 different plagues occuring in the last thousand years. If is rather informative, but I'm not sure which kid would be interested in this. Despite its short length, I found parts of it rather dense. I had to put it down and come back to it throughout the day. It is very informative, which is a good thing in a non fiction book. So, if you have any interest in the Black Plague, Yellow Fever, and the Spanish Flu, and have little to no prior knowledge on the subject, I would recommend this book. If not, give it a pass. ( )

I love medical history, and this book has plenty. It has cool facts like the origins of the words vaccination and quarantine. More than the medical history, however, I love this book for the way that it connected plagues to the changing tides of History. Outbreak discusses the fall of European nobility, the rise of the working class, the decimation of Native American populations, slavery, and the change in feminine body standards all through the lens of disease. I would love to use this book, or chapters from it, to lend historical context to or units in class. Beyond the content, the images in the book are beautiful and sometimes affecting. This is a highly engaging read. ( )

This connects history and science by giving brief overviews of how major disease have shifted the course of history. The illustrations help to illuminate some of the more difficult concepts and paint a vibrant picture of the historical setting of each disease. The following epidemics are discussed, the Black Death, smallpox, yellow fever, cholera, tuberculosis, and influenza. In addition to a very frank outline of the societal causes of each epidemic, the scientific discoveries that followed are discussed. The book ends with a few predictions of how human history will be affected by pathogens in the future. ( )
