'Monumental and deeply revelatory' --The Irish Times

'Highly recommended' --Irish Examiner

This is an outstanding contribution to Anglo-Irish studies at the time of the Luddites and Captain Swing. It reveals the horrid conditions at that time prevailing in Ireland and the truly awful deaths people suffered at a time of acute want.

a sensational book 9 Mar. 2012
By Sean F. Moran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book. I teach modern Irish history and have to say this is an important book on an important subject. James Donnelly is the man on the issue of agrarian movements and violence in modern Ireland and in this work he tackles Ireland's most prominent insurgency of the 19th century. Along the way he ties the subject to his previous work, that of other historians on similar developments in Europe, as well as to various theoretical approaches to this subject. It is all done deftly and provides a very readable and vivid narrative. Add to that and the truly excellent use of visual source materials (a model of how to do so) and it is one helluva work. I use it in class with great success. Highly, highly recommended.
