(p.1) Introduction
Reforming food in post-Famine Ireland

Ian Miller

Manchester University Press

The introduction provides an overview of the monograph, introducing key themes such as the complex relationship between post-Famine Ireland and Britain, the development of socially active medical and scientific communities in Ireland and the complex circulation of power relations that impacted on perceptions of Irish consumption and production practices between 1845 and 1922. It maintains that food continued to occupy a problematic position in Ireland for some decades after the Famine, serving as a contentious socio-economic issue that often served as a prism through which to understand Anglo-Irish relations in a period of political and social turbulence. The introduction outlines the theoretical methodologies employed in this monograph and provides a chapter outline.
