5.0 out of 5 stars Good
Reprinting contemporary documents gives an insight into contemporary attitudes and their complexity, beyond simplistic political sloganising. Toibin's summary is thoughtful, though at times difficult to follow.

3.0 out of 5 stars Irish Famine
A dissapointing book. It seemed to quote loads of other books all the time. Long winded.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a great book for anyone doing the family tree, it help,s you live threw their life of what it would of been like to live in your ancestors shoes, how they were treated and just how hard, ad painful those days really were, it should never be forgot, and although I was born in N,I. I never knew nothing about this terrible hunger and poverty, and the way this country is going at the moment, well the working man, the real worker,s of UK "not the MP,s" the working man is only 2 weeks away from poverty if he losses he job. so it does wake you up a bit to what,s going on and how easy it is for a country to fall juring this credit crunch.
