Saving a dying man might be just what Famine, the Black Horseman, needs to feed his starving heart. Having been sacrificed by his village shaman, Famine knows what it's like to do anything to survive. He wanders the world, sowing drought and starvation in his wake. Yet he hates being the Black Horseman more than anything in the world, except the man who ended his life all those centuries ago. Famine never stops doing his job, and never allows himself to fall in love. Ekundayo wants a better life for himself, so he steals a diamond from the mine where he works. Nothing goes well for him after that, and he finds himself dying in the desert on his way to the border. When he's rescued by Famine, Ekundayo isn't sure if his luck has changed or not. The longer he stays in Famine's company, the more Ekundayo discovers he just might be falling in love with Famine. One bad choice on Ekundayo's part and a future together seems out of reach. Will Famine let his only possibility of love go or will he defy Death himself to keep Ekundayo?

The bliss of colonial rule transformed a once prosperous Bengal into a state of pauperization. Recurrent Famine became a unique characteristic under the good governance of British rule. From 1765 to 1947 the country had witnessed numerous famines which perished more than 60 million Indians. among these Bengal witnessed three deadly famines which perished around 17 million people. Who was responsible for this destitution? Who was to blame? It was not an act of God, it was Imperial Holocaust or British Colonial Holocaust.

Famine Relief in Warlord China is a reexamination of disaster responses during the greatest ecological crisis of the pre-Nationalist Chinese republic. In 1920–1921, drought and ensuing famine devastated more than 300 counties in five northern provinces, leading to some 500,000 deaths. Long credited to international intervention, the relief effort, Pierre Fuller shows, actually began from within Chinese social circles. Indigenous action from the household to the national level, modeled after Qing-era relief protocol, sustained the lives of millions of the destitute in Beijing, in the surrounding districts of Zhili (Hebei) Province, and along the migrant and refugee trail in Manchuria, all before joint foreign–Chinese international relief groups became a force of any significance. Using district gazetteers, stele inscriptions, and the era’s vibrant Chinese press, Fuller reveals how a hybrid civic sphere of military authorities working with the public mobilized aid and coordinated migrant movement within stricken communities and across military domains. Ultimately, the book’s spotlight on disaster governance in northern China in 1920 offers new insights into the social landscape just before the region’s descent, over the next decade, into incessant warfare, political struggle, and finally the normalization of disaster itself.

The aim of the paper is to shift the focus of famine analysis away from food supply towards the macroeconomic determinants of food entitlement—i.e., to the ability of individuals to purchase food. Towards this end, we develop a model to demonstrate how loose monetary and fiscal policies may give rise to famine even when there is no change in per capita food output. We illustrate our findings with a description of the 1974 Bangladesh famine.

Reforming food in post-famine Ireland: Medicine, science and improvement, 1845–1922 is the first dedicated study of how and why Irish eating habits dramatically transformed between the famine and independence. It also investigates the simultaneous reshaping of Irish food production after the famine. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the book draws from the diverse methodological disciplines of medical history, history of science, cultural studies, Irish studies, gender studies and food studies. Making use of an impressive range of sources, it maps the pivotal role of food in the shaping of Irish society onto a political and social backdrop of famine, Land Wars, political turbulence, the First World War and the struggle for independence. It will be of interest to historians of medicine and science as well as historians of modern Irish social, economic, political and cultural history.

Armed conflict combined with prolonged drought has put about 20 million people at risk of starvation and death in Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen, and northern Nigeria. The international development and aid communities are caught between the enormity of the humanitarian crisis, which demands an estimated US$4.4 billion to address, and the lack of resources forthcoming from donors. Food crises, famine-like conditions, and famines recur with regularity in many developing countries (see Box 1 for definitions of terms). Although the current famines can be largely attributed to conflicts, chronic food insecurity also threatens several other African countries. For example, 6.7 million people were affected by Malawi’s largest food crisis in decades in 2016–2017, and the country remains vulnerable to weather extremes that could create food emergencies (World Bank 2017). In Kenya, food security has deteriorated since the end of 2016 and half of its 47 counties face food shortages (Chatterjee and Mengistu 2017). How do countries prepare to prevent shocks—natural and man-made—from generating food crises? What does it take to break the cycle of chronic food insecurity and build resilient food systems? How have some countries managed to prevent drought from leading to famine? In this brief, we document lessons for building resilient food systems to prevent future famines.

Trade in antiquity - its scale, status, pattern and context - is the subject of lively debate among historians. But no analysis has made a special investigation of trade in essential food stuffs. Famine and food crisis are also neglected subjects. This collection of essays is structured around the two focal points of trade and famine. A theme of the volume is that a combination of natural and artificial shortages made inevitable the bulk movement of staples between regions in all periods of antiquity. Novel contributions are offered in addition in relation to the cost of shipping, the extent of long-distance trade in wine, the relative demand for wheat and barley, the incidence and gravity of food crises, the efficiency of famine relief measures and the part played by food shortages in the collapse of the late Roman frontier system.

The terrible 1984 famine in Ethiopia focused the world's attention on the country and the issue of aid as never before. Anyone over the age of 30 remembers something of the events - if not the original TV pictures, then Band Aid and Live Aid, Geldof and Bono. Peter Gill was the first journalist to reach the epicentre of the famine and one of the TV reporters who brought the tragedy to light. This book is the story of what happened to Ethiopia in the 25 years following Live Aid: the place, the people, the westerners who have tried to help, and the wider multinational aid business that has come into being. We saved countless lives in the beginning and continued to save them now, but have we done much else to transform the lives of Ethiopia's poor and set them on a 'development' course that will enable the country to do without us?

The most disastrous famine in recent Chinese history took place between 1876 and 1879, afflicting all five provinces of North China [Shantung, Chihli, Honan, Shensi, and Shansi] and claiming no fewer than nine and a half million human lives . The hunger, pestilence, and violence brought about by the famine presented an overwhelming challenge to government and foreign relief efforts. Despite these obstacles, however, Timothy Richard of the Baptist Missionary Society succeeded in organizing an effective, systematic scheme of relief distribution in several districts of Shantung and Shansi. His work on the scene in turn stimulated the foreign community to organize the China Famine Relief Fund Committee, and his method of rendering aid set the pattern of foreign almsgiving which did much to ease the suffering of thousands. This study analyzes Richard’s role in the North China famine and evaluates his contribution to the relief effort. It concentrates on Richard’s initial distribution attempts in Shantung, 1876-1877, and his more extensive activities in Shansi, 1877-1879. By comparing Richard’s relief measures with those of the Ch’ing government as well as with those of the foreign distributors supported by the China Famine Relief Fund Committee, the study attempts to describe the various approaches to the problem of famine relief and to illuminate the many difficulties encountered by Chinese and foreigners in the relief work. Richard emerged from the calamity convinced that he must urge China’s leaders to eradicate the basic causes of famine and similar natural disasters and to elevate the physical as well as the spiritual welfare of the rural masses.

Also, nobody can accuse you of hoarding food, in an emergency, which according to them should be distributed to everybody else who did not do any canning or preserving! This book is not for the faint hearted. It is not like other books on survival, with just a number of tips and techniques, because it has real life situations and episodes, based on experience and circumstances. These include war, riots, genocides, and other man-made catastrophes, which the author has experienced, during her lifetime or which has been recounted to her by her family members during their lifetimes. Unfortunately, all over the world, there is absolutely no generation which can say that it has not faced war, catastrophes, or other natural and man-made disasters. That is why even though this book may have a number of episodes, which may look really horrible, especially to people who have never faced any drastic catastrophe, but one has to face reality and be ready for the worst. You may also say, that these things happen in your continent or country, it cannot happen in my country, because we are civilized, have a strong law and order system, and so on. But remember that during catastrophes, nothing is normal, and that is when human beings and their true natures come to the forefront, and a survival of the fittest, and a fight to live, and the need to preserve and protect. This is the first natural instinct of human beings, and it cannot disappear through a thin polish of civilization. One sunny evening I asked a number of my friends during a casual weekend get-together, in America, whether they knew anything about surviving in famine conditions or any other disaster conditions. Their immediate response was that this was not possible in America, due to its state-of-the-art disaster management technology, and latest knowledge on how to deal with disasters in any form. Also, according to them, thanks to the large amounts of food being produced, by their farmers, there was absolutely no chance of famines or droughts, and the only disaster against which they could survive was natural catastrophes. This was 20 years ago, and I could say, that at that time, the outlook was rather positive, for mankind to survive for another couple of millenniums. Unfortunately, with the coming of more natural disasters every year and even man-made catastrophes like war, the chances of one suffering from a famine is getting to be larger, every year. I am not a pessimistic soothsayer. I am just being practical. Look around you. Remember the social, political, economical, and financial condition of the world around you, of say 25 years ago, and compare it with the same factors today. You are going to be surprised at the number of catastrophic disasters, wars, political upheavals, and other factors which are detrimental to the human condition, and its steady rise, every year. So there is absolutely no basis for you putting your head under your safety blanket, and curling up in a corner and singing, no, no, this cannot happen to us, because we are invulnerable, invincible, survivors, and the government is going to protect us.

The description of sequelae of nutritional deficien cies was equally oversimplified. Obviously, a disease like rickets, which affected hard tissues--the skeleton- had irreversible consequences. Destruction or alteration of tissues, such as in cancrum oris or severe xerophthal mia, was equally permanent and easily observed. Other models were beriberi or scurvy, where, by contrast, the vitamin treatment seemed to restore the individual to the completely normal status quo ante. Most nutritionists were therefore little prepared intellectually for the series of suggestive findings con cerning nutrition and mental development which has been the highlight of nutritional research in the past decade: the discovery that there are irreversible gaps in mental development not correlated with obvious permanent somatic lesions which follow acute malnutrition during the develop ment of the young infant. Furthermore, not only are ex isting somatic instruments--physical examination, the scale, and the measuring tape--inadequate to detect such intellectual and behavioral deficits, but some of the current psychological instruments, bound to traditions of Western culture, are often poorly adapted to measure fine differences in psychological development among poor populations. These initial discoveries have stimulated important methodological advances, ranging from better staining techniques for the study of fibers connecting brain neurons to better tests for the study of cognitive development.
