The Famine Plot: England's Role in Ireland's Greatest Tragedy
Tim Pat Coogan
During a Biblical seven years in the middle of the nineteenth century, fully a quarter of Irelandís citizens either perished from starvation or emigrated in what came to be known as Gorta Můr, the Great Hunger. Waves of hungry peasants fled across the Atlantic to the United States, with so many dying en route that it was said, "you could walk dry shod to America on their bodies." In this sweeping history Irelandís best-known historian, Tim Pat Coogan, tackles the dark history of the Irish Famine and argues that it constituted one of the first acts of genocide.
