Paddy's Lament, Ireland 1846-1847: Prelude to Hatredby Thomas Gallagher
Synopses & Reviews
Ireland in the mid-1800s was primarily a population of peasants, forced to live on a single, moderately nutritious crop: potatoes. Suddenly, in 1846, an unknown and uncontrollable disease turned the potato crop to inedible slime, and all Ireland was threatened. Index.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 313-333) and index.
