|Abstract:||Famines & crises of subsistence have always been threats to humankind. Famine response, explicit or implicit, has always been a central social concern, to the extent that every society is equipped with means - both normative & institutional - to deal with crises such as famine. By analyzing cases of response to famines across various societies throughout time, a typology of famine response is developed that should enhance theoretical understanding of the phenomenon. Four types of famine response - reciprocal, redistributive, market, & global society - are presented & linked to the following modes of production respectively: kin-ordered, tributory, early capitalist, & late capitalist.|
