ABSTRACT
An encylopedia entry for the term "famine" is presented. It occurs in circumstances where many people die from lack of food. It was argued by J. Dr&eagrave;ze and A. Sen, that it is the result of lack of entitlement, rather than lack of food in itself. They also believe that no famine has occurred in a democratic state.
