A death-dealing famine : the great hunger in Ireland by Christine Kinealy( )

17 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Irish Famine of 1845-52, although a pivotal event in the development of modern Ireland, was for decades marginalised or ignored by Irish historians. In examining the reasons for this silence, Famine expert Christine Kinealy demonstrates how many current attitudes and arguments about the Famine were evident during the event itself. The influences that shaped the responses to the Famine represent a core theme of this book." "Dr Kinealy focuses on the key factors which nurtured both policy formulations and the unfolding of events in mid-nineteenth-century Ireland. These include political ideologies, such as the influential doctrine of political economy; providentialist ideas which ordained that the potato blight was a 'judgement of God'; and an opportunistic interpretation of the crisis that viewed the Famine and the consequent social dislocation as an opportunity to reconstruct Irish society. Kinealy also examines the roles of the Irish landlords and merchants, political factions in Westminster and the pivotal role played by civil servants within the British government."--Jacket

Repeal and revolution : 1848 in Ireland by Christine Kinealy( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1848 is frequently referred to as ‘the year of revolutions’: a year when revolutionary fervour spread through most of Europe. It is generally assumed that Ireland was not involved in the political upheavals that were a hallmark of this period. Although a small uprising did take place in Ireland in July 1848, it is widely assumed to have been a ‘small and ill-conceived rising’. As soon as it was over, the British Government was characterizing the rising and its leaders as foolish and pathetic
The great Irish famine : impact, ideology, and rebellion by Christine Kinealy( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Irish famine was a pivotal event in the development of modern Ireland. This work explores the rise in crime, the food export controversy, the role of religion, the growth of the Orange Order, and the impact of the uprising in 1848
Daniel O'Connell and the anti-slavery movement : 'the saddest people the sun sees' by Christine Kinealy( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study offers invaluable insight in to a much-neglected area of historical research on this nineteenth-century political figure. Previous histories of O'Connell have dealt predominantly with his attempts to secure a repeal of the 1800 Act of Union and on his success in achieving Catholic Emancipation in 1829. Kinealy focuses in stead on O'Connell's contribution to the anti-slavery movement in the United States. She argues that by using his influences of Irish immigrants in the United States, O'Connell negotiated a position of importance in the international debate over the right to freedom

Charity and the Great Hunger in Ireland : the kindness of strangers by Christine Kinealy( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Irish Famine was one of the most devastating humanitarian disasters of the 19th century. In a period of only five years, Ireland lost approximately 25% of its population through a combination of death and emigration. How could such a tragedy have occurred at the heart of the resource-rich British Empire? This work explores this question by focusing on a particular, and lesser-known, aspect of the Famine: that being the extent to which people throughout the world mobilized to provide money, food and clothing to assist the starving Irish
War and peace : Ireland since the 1960s by Christine Kinealy( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past fifty years Ireland has been through a period of intense change, and has experienced both challenges and successes. In this work, the author, a historian explores the political triumphs and travails in Ireland over this period. She provides an account of the unfolding of The Troubles, the three decades of violence and social unrest between Catholic nationalists and Protestant unionists. She explores the Republic of Ireland's entry into the European Union in 1973, its often contentious relationship with Britain, and the changes in rates of emigration to the USA and the rest of the world. The women's movement in the 1970s and the successive election of two female presidents proved the Republic's ability to accept and internalize social change, and despite Catholic Church scandals and Northern Ireland's turbulence, this partitioned island has remained a significant presence on the world stage. Ireland's economy has also transformed over the last fifty years: the phenomenon of the "Celtic Tiger", the introduction of the Euro, and Ireland's current struggle with the global recession brings the story up to date. This book presents a panorama of the events that have shaped Ireland's social and political landscape over the last fifty years. It deals with Ireland's recent past, as well as how it will continue to develop in the future

A disunited kingdom? : England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, 1800-1949 by Christine Kinealy( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When did the United Kingdom come into being? What were the steps which led to its conception? Was the creation of the United Kingdom a symptom of national coherence or of disunity between the countries that made up the union? Did a new national identity come into being after 1801, or did old allegiances and loyalties become more deeply embedded? Is the eventual breakup of the reconstituted United Kingdom inevitable? In seeking answers to these questions, and explaining how the United Kingdom has evolved, the author explores a number of key themes including the steps to political union, economic change, religion, education, social welfare, war and national identity

The famine in Ulster : the regional impact by Ulster historical foundation( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume corrects that distortion "the Famine didn't happen in Ulster." Ulster was indeed spared what a local newspaper called "the horrors of Skibereen," but nonetheless, the severity of the famine, particularly in the winter 1846-7, is all too apparent in each of the nine counties. 95 inmates of Lurgan Workhouse died in one week in February 1847; and 351 people queued to get into Enniskillen Workhouse in one day. What was done to limit the tragedy? Contentious issues such as the effectiveness of government relief measures, the response of local landlords, and the role of the churches are all assessed
Tracing your Irish roots by Christine Kinealy( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women and the Great Hunger( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even considering recent advances in the development of women's studies as a discipline, women remain underrepresented in the history and historiography of the Great Hunger. The various roles played by women, including as landowners, relief-givers, philanthropists, proselytizers and providers for the family, have received little attention. This publication examines the diverse and still largely unexplored role of women during the Great Hunger, shedding light on how women experienced and shaped the tragedy that unfolded in Ireland between 1845 and 1852. In addition to more traditional sources, the contributors also draw on folklore and popular culture. Women and the Great Hunger brings together the work of some of the leading researchers in Irish studies, with new scholarship, methodologies and perspectives. This book takes a major step toward advancing our understanding of the Great Hunger."--Back cover
Frederick Douglass and Ireland : in his own wordsnVolume 2 by Frederick Douglass( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Douglass spent four months in Ireland at the end of 1845 that proved to be, in his own words, {u2018}transformative{u2019}. He reported that for the first time in his life he felt like a man, and not a chattel. Whilst in residence, he became a spokesperson for the abolition movement, but by the time he left the country in early January 1846, he believed that the cause of the slave was the cause of the oppressed everywhere. This book adds new insight into Frederick Douglass and his time in Ireland. Contemporary newspaper accounts of the lectures that Douglass gave during his tour of Ireland (in Dublin, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Limerick, and Belfast) have been located and transcribed. The speeches are annotated and accompanied by letters written by Douglass during his stay. In this way, for the first time, we hear Douglass in his own words
