Synopsis

This is an account of the Great Irish Potato Famine of the late 1840s, a famine which resulted in the death of about one million people and was also largely respondible, in conjunction with British government policies, for one of the great international human migration of British history - the mass exodus of some two million people from Ireland, mostly to North America, in the years 1845-55. This book combines narrative, analysis, historiography and scores of contemporary illustrations. It aims to provide an insight into the misery of the famine and the nightmare of mass evictions that followed.
