CANCELED: Meet the Author: Tim Pat CooganIn this grand, sweeping narrative, Ireland’s best-known historian, Tim Pat Coogan, gives a fresh and comprehensive account of the Great Famine, one of the darkest chapters in world history. Coogan argues that Britain was in large part responsible for the extent of the national tragedy, and in fact engineered the food shortage in an early case of ethnic cleansing.

Coogan is the author of a number of important works on Irish history, including Michael Collins and The IRA, published to wide acclaim. The former editor of The Irish Press, he lives in Dublin, Ireland.
