Reviews

"In his introduction he reviews the evolution of the census, including what data and definitions were chosen initially, and how the census developed over the years into a reliable tool which allowed analysts to develop data points by decade, indexing them and presenting findings. tom Jordan has made available from one source a broad spectrum of dtat for a study of a variety of Irish studies, including the famine (1845-1851), the agricultural reorganization that followed and the stream of emigration which resulted and continued thereafter. Dr. Jordan's work will also be fascinating for the general reader seeking an understanding of where the Irish lived, how they made their living, what kind of an education they received, where they worshipped and how long they lived." - Blanche M. touill, former President, Americn Council on Irish Studies, Chancellor, University of Missouri, St. Louis.
