Famine Diary

by Brendan O Cathaoir
EUR16.87 (14.68)
A unique record of the Great Famine, written with insight, detachment and empathy. Based on a wide selection of sources - contemporary newspapers, official correspondence and diaries - it provides a graphic picture of conditions in the Irish countryside as the crisis developed. It combines analysis and an overview with a focus on the worst-hit areas. The relief efforts are presented where possible, frequently with the help of priests' letters, from the perspective of the poor.
