Editorial Reviews

Review

'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

I purchased this book after a visit to the Famine Memorial in Hamden, CT, because I wanted to know more than the conventional take on the Irish famine. This book certainly delivers. Though not a quick or easy read, A Death-Dealing Famine helped me understand the historical context of the famine, it's social and political underpinnings, and the truly great horror it caused. in so doing, it also helped me to better understand contemporary issues where social prejudice and political expediency create human tragedy. If you want more than "crossword puzzle" knowledge of The Great Hunger, A Death-Dealing Famine is well worth your time.

Format: Paperback
Kinealy's Death-Dealing Famine is scholarly but accessible. Her data on English exports from Ireland is staggering, put into a context that explains the diastrous effects on the Irish people of English hatred and greed.A Death-Dealing Famine: The Great Hunger in Ireland

I've read her books, heard her speak, and visited briefly with her. She is a true historian who tells the story of Ireland both factually based and a good read. Anyone Irish or going to Ireland should read this book.
