Historian Mark McGowan presents and evaluates current historical research into Irish Famine emigration to Canada and compares it to the “long and complex way the Famine memory has taken shape.” In this monograph, you’ll find fascinating insights into the 1847 migrants, but also the earlier Irish who received them, later arrivals, and the society that surrounded them.
