Summary
This compelling new look at one of the worst disasters to strike humankind--the Great Irish Potato Famine--provides fresh material and analysis on the role that nineteenth-century evangelical Protestantism played in shaping British policies and on Britain's attempt to use the famine to reshape Irish society and character
Summary
Describes the Great Irish Potato Famine that began in 1845 and discusses how the combined forces of bacterial infection, political greed, and religious intolerance started a disaster that killed twice as many people as died during the American Civil War
