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
