   schema:reviewBody ""These essays by Ireland's leading economic historian range widely over topics associated with the Ireland's Great Famine of 1846-52. Ireland's Great Famine includes four previously unpublished essays, together with others assembled from a wide range of publications in different fields. Some have been co-authored by other leading scholars. Taken together, the essays give a full account of the famine, its effects, what was and was not done to alleviate it, how it compares with other (especially modern third world) famines, and how successive scholars have tackled these matters. This will become a standard reference in both Irish history and the international field of famine studies."--Jacket." ;
