The Irish Famine
by Diarmaid Ferriter & Colm Tóibín
This unique volume, comprising Colm Tóibín’s acclaimed short text and a linked collection of key documents put together by one of Ireland’s leading younger historians, offers a many-sided view of one’s of history’s most poignant and far-reaching catastrophes. This book will allow the reader to understand the complex way in which the fragmentary past is both available to us … and distant from us.’ We get those insights from Tóibín’s short history and from a rich collection of documents — government papers, recipes, journalism, letters, statistics, personal statements, all linked so the book can be read as a whole.
