The Death Census of Black ’47: Eyewitness Accounts of Ireland’s Great Famine
The Great Irish Famine claimed the lives of one million people, mainly from the lower classes. In recent decades, its history has become the focus of considerable scholarly and popular attention, but much remains to be retrieved and reconstructed, particularly at the level of the rural poor. This book fills that gap.
