1 - 2 weeks availability
This pocket-sized text from the "New Horizons" series examines the Irish famine of 1845-1850, during which over one million of the Irish population died in a crop failure unprecedented in the history of modern Europe. Dependency on the potato as the main source of food brought widespread starvation and disease throughout Ireland and was followed by a mass emigration to Britain, North America, Canada and Australia. This book is published to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the famine.
A nation of paupers? - Ireland before 1845: the coming of the blight, 1845-6; the great hunger, 1846-7; from "recovery" to rebellion, 1847-8; relapse, 1848-51; the exodus - emigration from 1846 to 1855; epilogue - the legacy of the famine.
