Do people starve in democratic polities? It is often claimed that as government must respond to public needs during times of crisis, democracy has reduced famine in India since Independence. This book seeks to identify the processes which generate and perpetuate hunger in India, and what sort of intervention by public and private agencies are best suited to combat this problem. Bob Currie explains why problems of poverty and alleged starvation remain despite regular elections and intensive regional and national publicity.
