Daniel O'Connell, The British Press and The Irish Famine: Killing Remarks

Daniel O'Connell, The British Press and The Irish Famine: Killing Remarks by Leslie A. Williams
English | March 2nd, 2017 | ASIN: B06XDQG47X, ISBN: 0754605531 | 398 Pages | EPUB | 7.71 MB

Through an investigation of the reportage in nineteenth-century English metropolitan newspapers and illustrated journals, this book begins with the question 'Did anti-O'Connell sentiment in the British press lead to "killing remarks," rhetoric that helped the press, government and public opinion distance themselves from the Irish Famine?' The book explores the reportage of events and people in Ireland, focussing first on Daniel O'Connell, and then on debates about the seriousness of the Famine.
