Review:

"The author of this study ... writes with flair and precision about the many intersections of human generosity and human tragedy during Ireland's darkest hour. Undergirded by meticulous and wide-ranging research and vast in its purview, this is an important book with conclusions that are unlikely to be overturned." - The Historian

"Kinealy (Irish studies, Drew Univ.) has published extensively on the famine and contributes here the most comprehensive work on private charity to date.In this well-researched study, Kinealy properly credits the contributions of the Quakers in offering much immediate aid and bearing witness to the tragedy and also brings to light the roles of the leading aid organization (the British Relief Association), the Irish General Central Relief Committee, the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant churches, the Irish diaspora (especially in the US), women's groups, and many others. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." --A. H. Plunkett, Piedmont Virginia Community College, CHOICE

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Great Irish Famine was one of the most devastating humanitarian disasters of the nineteenth century. In a period of only five years, Ireland lost approximately 25% of its population through a combination of death and emigration. How could such a tragedy have occurred at the heart of the vast, and resource-rich, British Empire?Charity and the Great Hunger in Ireland explores this question by focusing on a particular, and lesser-known, aspect of the Famine: that being the extent to which people throughout the world mobilized to provide money, food and clothing to assist the starving Irish. This book considers how, helped by developments in transport and communications, newspapers throughout the world reported on the suffering in Ireland, prompting funds to be raised globally on an unprecedented scale. Donations came from as far away as Australia, China, India and South America and contributors emerged from across the various religious, ethnic, social and gender divides. Charity and the Great Hunger in Ireland traces the story of this international aid effort and uses it to reveal previously unconsidered elements in the history of the Famine in Ireland.
