Medicine, science and improvement, 18451922

By (author) Ian Miller

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Explores modern Irish food history from medical, scientific, cultural and social perspectives
  • Offers an important contribution to the Irish medical history by exploring the social and cultural forces unique to Ireland that shaped post-famine experiences of food
  • The first dedicated study of the dramatic changes that occurred in food customs following the famine, whereas pre-existing studies have often focused on the pre-famine potato diet
  • Uniquely it blends together discussion of consumption and production to reveal how improvement in both spheres was once seen as essential to the regeneration and improvement of Ireland after the famine
