Famines, like wars and epidemics, have occurred from ancient times, achieving biblical proportions not only in biblical times but throughout es from the 20th century include the Chinese famine of –61, which resulted in 15–30 million deaths, the Ethiopian famine of –85, which caused approximately 1 million deaths but affected more.

    Entitlement Debate. The causes of the Ethiopian Famine are still being debated now and surely this must be put forward to some extent? There is a major debate as to whether the primary cause of starvation is the collapse of poor Ethiopians entitlements to food (following the Sen argument).   In his book, Famine and Foreigners: Ethiopia Since Live Aid, Telegraph and ITV journalist Peter Gill (right) sets out to explore the other side of events.
