In the fall of 1845, a mysterious blight ravaged Ireland's potato harvest, beginning a prolonged period of starvation, suffering, and emigration that reduced the Irish population by as much as twenty-five percent in a mere six years. The Famine profoundly impacted Ireland's social and political history and altered its relationship with the United Kingdom. This document collection presents a broad selection of historical perspectives - a guide to greater understanding of the causes, the course, and the impact of the Famine. Letters, speeches, newspaper articles, and other works are collected within, carefully described and annotated for the reader. A substantial introduction, a chronology of events, and a useful glossary are also included to aid in interpretation of the primary texts.
