Black Potatoes: The Story of the Great Irish Famine, 1845-1850
Using first-hand accounts, illustrations and documents from archival sources, Bartoletti recreates the milieu of a century and a half ago, and links the lives of ordinary people to larger social, cultural and political issues. Bartoletti's beautifully designed book makes clear the long-lasting impact of this event and the economic and political issues that lead to famine today.
