: I started it yesterday and it looks very interesting. My
: Spanish edition has an excellent introduction, on
: which I will comment later. Anybody else?

: I will probably start reading our July selection late
: today or tomorrow. In the meantime I've discovered an
: interesting related resource. Among the latest
: additions to the Open Yale Courses, which are free
: videos of actual class lectures, there is a history
: course titled "Epidemics in Western Society Since
: 1600." Defoe's book is the first reading
: assignment in that class. Lectures 1 & 2 are
: introductory, and lectures 3, 4 and 5 deal
: specifically with plague.
