Je prépare un concours d'enseignement et ce livre m'est très utile. Il propose d'abord une chronologie des événements de la Grande Famine en Irlande. Puis récit très étoffé. Très utile.

Reads like a very sad novel, the characters are bigger than life and the book gives in "in sight" of famine Ireland.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Deja Vu All Over Again 11 janvier 2013
Par Capt. William Flint - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For many of us whose ancestors came from Ireland, the glee which the Irish Famine was received by the English was known but rarely spoke of. It is refreshing to have one such as Tim Pat put it all down in such stark, yet poetic, terms. Some may have issues with the organization of the book or Coogan's style, but it is probably intentional on his part. This is not something to be read like a text and then laid to rest. The writing near forces one to go back, re-read passages, examine time lines and dig deeper into the history.

In a very few pages (only 235), Coogan has managed to stuff decades of genocidal behavior justified and rationalized by faux political beliefs of an astoundingly arrogant ruling class. The plight of the peasant turned out in the storms to wither and die so the land can be "put to better use" such as raising sheep or cattle should not come as any surprise to those that have studied the English attitude towards "her colonies" since the Tudor age.
Yet the attitudes and well organized, systematic efforts to obviously rid the island of the native population are still quite shocking. But perhaps more shocking to the reader is the overwhelming evidence of official English policy to pursue this goal.

Coogan supplies no small measure of direct quotations of the politicians, civil servants and important voices of the era confirming the rationalization of the ruling class to decide the fate of those lessor beings; deciding the so-called human inhabitants of the island were less valuable than pigs or cows and certainly more trouble than they were worth.

This is not an easy read, and probably no examination of the era should be easy. Hopefully the reader will be motivated to peel back a few more layers of this onion themselves, but one aspect that should not be ignored are the words of the perpetrators of this bloody and heartless time.
It is more than a little distressing to hear the words and views of people like Trevelyn coming out of the mouths of todays politicians and opinion shapers.

Tim Pat Coogan has produced a thought provoking, expose of one of the most horrific periods of the last 250 years. The reader should the read words and examine the actions of those masters of the world at that time and see if the same sort of attitudes can be detected today.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bound by the Invisible Chains of Hopelessness. 25 janvier 2016
Par Tim George - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"WHEN A TIDE, EVEN A TIDE OF MISERY, builds up sufficient force, it will burst a dam. Throughout 1847 and 1848 such a tide built up in Ireland; it manifested itself not in revolution, as the Young Irelanders had found to their cost, but in immigration as a frantic people sought to flee their accursed land."

About three fourths of the way through his magnificently detailed account of what has been the not-so-private history of Irish oppression, author, Tim Pat Coogan puts his historical finger on what was at the heart of the Irish situation in the 1700s and 1800s. In this powerful though sometimes plodding account of what has been and in some way still is the miseries of the Irish people, Coogan forcefully leads the reader to see that while Wilberforce and his compatriots in England saw that the evil of enslavement of Africans rightfully had to end, most if not all in that country failed to see the contradiction of ending physical slavery while pushing on with what amounted to virtual genocide not far away.

Having grown up in the deep south, systemic racism never made sense to me. As an adult, my studies led me to examine my Scots-Irish heritage, and the prevailing attitude toward non-whites seemed even more mysterious. Though both sides of my family immigrated from Northern Ireland, first to North and South Carolina in the late 1700s, and from there to Alabama and Mississippi in the 1820s, I never heard terms like Black Irish, and it wasn't uncommon to hear disparaging stories about ignorant Irishmen in much the same vein as racist jokes about blacks from my peers. In Chapter 12, the author offers reasons for this contradictory relationship between Irish immigrants and freed slaves in America. As he points out, "The antagonisms and tensions encountered by the Irish triggered another unpleasant reality: anti-black feelings on the part of the Irish." They had long been on the bottom rung of the social and economic ladder and were glad to have someone else occupy that sorry place.

The Famine Plot is not easy reading. Here I read again of how a people were systematically enslaved, not by chains and whips, but by ignorance and starvation. Most who left Ireland in those two centuries were not forced in chains to board squalid ships bound for America, but were bound by the invisible chains of hopelessness. Use of the term "plot" may seem like something that was hidden behind a veil of conspiracy. However this was a plot carried out very much in view of the public. England systematically made it next to impossible for the Irish to live on their own land. Thus said John Mitchell, "God sent the blight but the English created the Famine".

Perhaps the strongest part of this work is where Coogan explains why the Irish people as a whole were silent about the national tragedy of the great famine in the mid 1800s. Pointing to survivors of the Holocaust, the author shows how many Irish immigrants came to America with a "guilty silence". Only over the last generation or so has the silence been lifted.

This is recorded history at its best. The citations are detailed and the writing crisp. Hats off to the author for a job well done.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Death by Bureacracy through starvation - the British Crown at work 26 février 2017
Par RuggedShark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a very well organized study of the famine catastrophe caused by the genocidal British Crown. It is clearly shown that the official party line was to apply band-aids to appease the mostly dead British conscience while the bureaucrats debated "political economics" which is a meaningless term like white-black. I'm still researching how the blight got to Ireland, which I am confident that if the truth were known it would be found to have been imported by the British Crown through some of their many clandestine networks of terror, disease and genocide in the world. This book may begin to awake some to the hideously evil fathers of organized crime called the British Empire and what future it has planned for U.S.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Powerful book that while easy to read academically is difficult to read emotionally. 24 mai 2017
Par ARG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Deeply depressing and detailed. My history courses taught me the famine was an agricultural crisis that precipitated large numbers of Irish immigrants to America which then shaped American culture and politics. Never once did I learn that it was preventable and racist. Coogan defends the thesis that the British committed genocide and I think it is not only convincing but well documented in this book. A strong anti-Irish and anti-Catholic bias motivated decisions by the colonial power that had usurped power in their neighbor and then used and drained resources even during a time of food crisis. This book was so powerful in its choice of quotes from papers, officials, and victims that I had to put it down several times from disgust at what was done to the Irish. More than this the idea that the poor are to blame for their poverty when the system is stacked against them and come what may they deserve it is such a popular sentiment in American politics today made it even harder to read in that we have learned nothing from this massive loss of life. Powerful book that while easy to read academically is difficult to read emotionally.

Par Bob - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Author Tim Pat Coogan brings a new, and damning perspective to the Irish famine. Its content is exceptional and makes the moral and legal case that the famine was genocide. The book is powerfully descriptive. At times, I found it difficult (emotionally) to read of the incredible suffering of the Irish people and the cruelty they tried to survive. Many failed. As the great-great grandson of ancestors who died in the famine, it made that part of my family history very real and very "present". Powerful book, well written with descriptive narrative that makes one understand what happened to the Irish in the famine in way I never understood before. A true lesson in how human beings moral failings bring tragic results to innocents.
