The Great Irish Famine : Winners and Losers
AbstractThe Great Irish Famine was truly a 'great' famine; it killed one million of 8.5 million people. Though Amartya Sen's surmise that no famine in history killed such a high proportion of the people is an exaggeration, certainly nothing remotely like the Irish famine had happened in England since Tudor times or in France since the annees de misere late in Louis XIV's reign.
