Editorial Reviews


"Fortunately, the new economic history of Ireland is championed by a scholar whose remarkable command of its theories, methods, and scholarship is enhanced by his willingness and ability to step away from the dispassionate layers of statistical complexities to infuse his work with passion and compassion for the people who lived, died, emigrated, prospered, and suffered in Ireland."--Journal of Economic History

"[The author] has not only thoroughly surveyed, mastered, and interpreted the work of other practitioners in the field, but he has also assembled data from his own formidable excursions into Irish demography and economic performance in an exemplary manner."--The Albion

"O Grada argues convincingly"--Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"...has written a work of extraordinary depth and clarity that will serve as an authoritative text for several decades."--HISTORY

"The strorytelling in this book is lively, [The book is] an earthier, more authentic history of the Irish peoples."--American Historical Review

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
