Description - The Great Irish Famine by Cormac O Grada

The Irish Famine of 1846-50 was one of the great disasters of the nineteenth century. Cormac O Grada's concise survey puts the Famine in the context of the Irish economy, assesses the Famine itself, and discusses its many consequences. Despite a devastating food shortage, the huge death toll of one million was hardly inevitable; a less doctrinaire attitude to famine relief could perhaps have saved many lives. This book provides an up-to-date introduction to an event of major importance in the history of nineteenth-century Ireland and Britain.
