Saving a dying man might be just what Famine, the Black Horseman, needs to feed his starving heart.

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

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,

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.

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
