       through the experiences of a selection of significant 
       figures from a region that was badly afflicted"--
       |cProvided by publisher 
520 2  "Figures in a Famine Landscape follows a number of 
       individuals involved in different public capacities in a 
       particularly afflicted district of Ireland during the 
       Great Famine. Among them are an outspoken newspaper 
       editor; two clergymen (one Catholic, one Protestant); two 
       highly qualified and busy physicians; two landlords and an
       exterminating agent; a Board of Works official and a Poor 
       Law inspector. Some of these figures have been subjected 
       to academic study previously, while others are more 
       obscure, but their thinking and actions all had a major 
       effect on the existences of tens of thousands of the 
       destitute poor in Ireland at a crucial point in the 
       country's history. Taking an exhaustive approach to source
       material that includes private diaries, letters, official 
       reports and correspondence, police files, parliamentary 
       papers and a wealth of newspapers, the author builds up an
       in-depth, almost microscopic picture of each individual, 
       providing a unique and very human lens through which to 
       view the Great Famine"--|cProvided by publisher
