I'm not sure which English noble beat up Mr. Cantor as a child, but Cantor is giving it back with interest. From historically flawed to downright malicious, Cantor is using the plague to point out why English nobles, the monasteries, and a few others just plain bite the big one. At his best, Cantor effectively explains how anthrax outbreaks may explain some of the devastation of the plague--concurrent epidemics. At his worst, it's a polemic determined to show you how awful the nobility of England, especially Edward III, was. If it was a book, I'd skim. His history is so skewed, that one has to wonder at the veracity of the rest.
