about

Ireland in the mid-1800s was primarily a population of peasants, forced to live on a single, moderately nutritious crop: potatoes. Suddenly, in 1846, an unknown and uncontrollable disease turned the potato crop to inedible slime, and all Ireland was threatened. Index.
Thomas Gallagher (1918-1992), whose father immigrated to the United States from Ireland via England, grew up in New York. He was the author of several other books of world history and topics of Irish interest.
