Holodomor and Gorta Mór is a comparative study of Ireland’s Great Famine, or ‘an Gorta Mór’, (1845-51) and Ukraine’s ‘Holodomor’ (1932-33) that examines the role of historical identities and national historical narratives of the two nations. Written by eminent historians, political scientists, and literary and film scholars, this volume is the first attempt to draw these approaches together to explore how the historical experiences of famine were translated into narratives that supported political claims for independent national statehood.
