Princeton University Press have just published Cormac Ó Gráda’s Eating People is Wrong and Other Essays on Famine, Its Past and Its Future (

This is Cormac’s fourth book with Princeton UP.  The others are Black ’47 and Beyond: the Great Irish Famine in History, Economy, and Memory (1999); Jewish Ireland in the Age of Joyce: A Socioeconomic History (2006), and Famine: A Short History (2009).

Over the last several years, most of Cormac’s research has been joint work with colleague Morgan Kelly.  They have a paper (with former UCD student Neil Cummins, of LSE) due out soon on the last outbreaks of plague in London, and they have just written one on ‘Adam Smith, Watches and the Industrial Revolution’.
