Ireland: A New Economic History, 1780-1939
Cormac ï¿½ Grï¿½da unites historical research with economic theory in this original and stimulating book, which will be essential reading for all students of Irish history. Within a broadly chronological framework, Ireland offers a fresh, comprehensive examination of all the well-known puzzles of Irish economic history including the inevitability of the Famine, the role of land tenure in agricultural backwardness, and the failure of the economy to industrialize. O'Grï¿½da's account is both accessible, with technical discussion kept to a minimum, and intellectually exciting.
