Summary

Inspired by the work of Amartya Sen, Democracy and Famine is a study of the effect of democracy on famine prevention.Examining the electoral politics of famine, Rubin re-examines Sen's hypothesis that democracies provide protection from famine. The book's overall framework moves from placing political systems at the heart of famine protection to look at the political processes involved, and how policy implementation can provide effective famine protection.Using a case study based approach, Democracy and Famine will be of interest to scholars and students of democracy, comparative politics and international relations.
