Subtitle: "In the Irish, Bengali and Ethiopian famines, ideology, mindsets of governments, racial preconceptions and administrative incompetence were more lethal than the initiating blights, the loss of potatoes or rice or the grain named teff." This is the story of three terrible famines. The first is An Gorta Mor, the great hunger of Ireland, which began in 1846. The second is the deadly famine that struck Bengal in 1943.
