As a contributor to this volume on the Great Famine in Ireland, I think that this book makes an important contribution to the historiography of the Famine insofar as it may be the only volume to trace the linkage between the U.S. and Ireland during that tragic era. Neil Hogan, author of THE CRY OF THE FAMISHING, Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society.
  • Buzatus
Well-written and well-supported by facts, it's a book that you can follow and remember. I was taught at school that the British Government did what it could without understanding what it was dealing with. This book describes the Irish situation, at all political, economic and ultimately human levels. The story follows the Irish travels to Northern US, UK as well, basically a pitiful struggle to be allowed to survive. Doesn't come across as biassed against GB, although now I would be.
A book well worth reading.
