The Irish Potato Famine, or the ‘Great Hunger’, was the last great famine in Western Europe and one of the most catastrophic recorded in that region. The Famine was not only important for Ireland but for many other countries. It led to the death of up to a million people and the emigration of two million people from the island of Ireland. It changed Ireland and its influence can still be felt to this day in the economy, society and politics of Ireland.

The Irish Potato Famine, which in Ireland became known as "The Great Hunger," was a turning point in Irish history. It changed Irish society forever, most strikingly by greatly reducing the population. In 1841, Ireland's population was more than eight million. The botanical cause of the Great Famine was a virulent fungus (Phytophthora infestans), spread by the wind, that first appeared on the leaves of potato plants in September and October of 1845. The diseased plants withered with shocking speed. When the potatoes were dug up for harvest, they were found to be rotting.

A study of the great Irish Famine of 1845-50. Chapters on famine historiography and on writing the famine show that a "media studies" approach opens up new areas of debate. Connections between the Famine and the reshaping of Irish family life becomes clear through one man's response to the crisis: Vere Foster's emigration schemes. Chapters on the responses and experiences of the Irish communities throughout the world include studies of North America, Australia and the famine refugees who fled to England. This is the sixth and final volume in the series on "The Irish World Wide".
