Disguised as a mild-mannered refutation of myths concerning the desirability of large farms and tenancy at will, this book is actually a strong, if apologetic, indictment of the economic policies that killed one million people and displaced millions more in the so-called "famine" in 19th century Ireland. Clean and bright; no owners' marks; lacks dust jacket and shows just a hint of rubbing at the spine tips, otherwise excellent.
