ABSTRACT

Attempts to formulate a precise definition of famine are fraught with difficulties. In commonsense terms, a famine refers to a sudden event involving large-scale deaths from starvation within a short period. In reality, the existence of starvation has been and remains a persistent characteristic of many societies. This means that a famine has to be defined in terms of a significant deviation from a ‘norm’ and it is hard to avoid ambiguities in such an enterprise. Moreover, in many situations, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between deaths from starvation and those from disease. Since starvation reduces the human body’s resistance to disease, deaths from starvation can be easily confused with deaths from disease and famines are typically accompanied by epidemics. In spite of these difficulties of definition, however, a famine, when it occurs, rarely fails to be recognized. There is usually a sudden increase in mortality and there are obvious signs (e.g. begging, eating of inedibles, food riots, sharp increases in petty crimes, unusual scales of migration, etc.) of a desperate search for food by a sizeable section of the population.
