'One of the outstanding historians of modern Ireland . . . Anyone who wants to understand the making of modern Ireland should read Kinealy's book.' Irish Democrat 'Tremendous . . . An invaluable addition to that small collection of books which help us look at ourselves through our own eyes, giving us the right to feel hurt and angry, a right taken away from us, and which still, sadly, has to be fought for.' Andersonstown News Famine expert Christine Kinealy examines the influences that shaped the responses to the Famine of 1845-52. The key factors she analyses include political ideologies; providentialist ideas that read the potato blight as a judgement from God; opportunistic interpretations; the role of civil servants, Irish landlords and merchants.Biographie de l'auteur :

Summary: A long-awaited book published to coincide with the commemorations across North America of the 150th anniversary of Black 47.The Great Famine in Ireland raged between 1845 and 1852 and resulted in the death or emigration (particularly to the us) of millions of Irish citizens. Despite this, and the enormous impact it had on the development of modern Ireland, it was marginalized and ignored by Irish historians for many years. It has now been designated in the US as an example of genocide. Famine expert Christine Kinealy examines the reasons for the silence in Ireland, and shows how many current attitudes and arguments about the Famine were evident during the event itself. In particular she looks at the pivotal role played by the British Government, political factions within Westminster and the roles played by the Irish landlords and merchants who controlled much of the movement of food.
