A classic of nineteenth-century political and social commentary, Beaumont's singular portrait offers the compelling immediacy of an eyewitness to history. In a devastating critique of British policy in Ireland, Beaumont questioned why a government with such enlightened institutions tolerated such oppression. He was scathing in his depiction of the ruinous state of Ireland, noting the desperation of the Catholics, the misery of repeated famines, the unfair landlord system http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000058592246#!/pages/Belfast-Ireland-Tours/134063684639?ref=ts http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog/DEBIRE.html
