Reviews

A comprehensive history of an unprecedented year, Tooze's account describes how the pandemic played out politically across the globe, the interplay between climate change and the pandemic, and the myriad effects of the world economy nearly shutting down in a brief period that, as Tooze puts it, made "History with a capital 'H.'" Readers will find this deeply informed parsing of the pandemic to be illuminating and thought-provoking.--Publishers Weekly

Economic historian Tooze examines the unprecedented decision of governments around the world to shutter their economies in the face of pandemic . . . As the pandemic hopefully continues to fade, other crises remain. This book is a valuable forecast of future problems.--Kirkus Reviews
