    DescriptionThe definitive book on the Great Famine from Ireland's greatest historian, combining the latest research and fresh insights. The Great Famine was a period of mass starvation, disease and emigration in Ireland. Between 1845 and 1852 the island's population dropped by 2.5 million-a full quarter of its citizens - and its legacy continues to be felt. For both the native Irish and those in the resulting diaspora, the famine entered folk memory and became a rallying point for nationalist movements for decades. This is a fascinating and sobering look at a dark period of global history, as well as the ramifications of the 'famine mentality' that continues to haunt Ireland to this day.

    Review quote
    'Tim Pat Coogan...has done extensive research and produced a book which is informative, educational and interesting. The Famine Plot is well worth reading and studying as the descendants of the main actors are still in power today.' - Marxist Review
