This book is on the Irish famine/Holocaust. It brings some new and exciting information to this well known subject. I make the case that the famine is an historical misnomer, you cannot have a famine whilst at the same time setting new food export records! I redress Queen Victoria, s role in this sad and tragic tale of woe. I bring a fresh approach to this story with much new revelatory Information. I have every intention in making this book the penultimate book on this subject!
This book is a revelatory book on the Irish "famine". A misnomer if ever their was one. The book dissects the well known story with, a razor sharp intellect, new novel historical knowledge and with the passion of a fired up writer, on top of his game. He hopes it to be as good as "The Great Hunger",the biggest selling Irish history book of all time! Thus he claims, this is, the penultimate book on the Irish famine-Holocaust. He tells the story well, with great passion and enthusiasm for the subject. We start with ancient Ireland and quickly learn about Irelands extremely important role in developing the bedrock upon which both Europe and Christendom now stand. Next we discuss pre-famine Ireland. Then quickly move onto the main course, the horrific Irish Famine itself. Told like never told before! This books makes a clean sweep of the traditional Famine story and brings it into the Twenty First century,with a crisp analytical very, very engaging style. If you think you know about the Irish Famine, think again! Prepare yourself, to be bowled over with a magisterial sweep of an old hoary story, which is unceremoniously tossed into the delete bin of Famine historiography. This book delivers, with robust vigour, panache,probity and bare faced honesty,for those seeking the truth.
About the author
Born in Manchester England. Studied Ba honours at Magee University college ,Derry Northern Ireland,and M.A at Trinity College Dublin. This is my second book. My first book was on the true, real and authentic history of the American revolution. An expose for sure! I live in the North of Ireland, and have a great fascination & love for history. I have studied widely, across the whole spectrum of human history for the past 45 years. I am mainly self taught in this field of study, and I always try to tell a good story, well.
