The Irish Famine of 1845-52, although a pivotal event in the development of modern Ireland, was for decades marginalised or ignored by Irish historians. The book focuses on the key factors which nurtured both policy formulations and the unfolding of events in mid-nineteenth century Ireland. Also examined are the roles of the Irish landlords and merchants, political factions in Westminster and the pivotal role played by civil servants within the British government.About the Author:
