Famine is the most extreme manifestation of the existence of poverty, inequality and political apathy. Whereas poverty, hunger and diseases are not easily eradicated in the world today, famines are often perceived to be relatively simple to avert. However, the political incentives to prevent famines are not always present.
The book's overall framework moves from placing political systems at the heart of famine protection to look at the political processes involved.
Using a case study based approach drawing on famines from India, Malawi and Niger Democracy and Famine will be of interest to scholars and students of democracy, comparative politics and international relations.
