Abstract

Karl Marx's (and Frederick Engels's) analysis of nineteenth-century Irish history revealed what is referred to as "the rift of Éire" in the colonial period. Indeed, it is in relation to the analysis of the systematic disruption of the Irish environment that Marx's ecological inquiries can be seen as taking on a concrete and developed form, encompassing the ecological as well as economic robbery that characterized the Irish colonial regime.
