This is a timeline of major famines on the Indian subcontinent during British rule from 1765 to 1947. The famines included here occurred both in the princely states (regions administered by Indian rulers), British India (regions administered either by the British East India Company from 1765 to 1857; or by the British Crown, in the British Raj, from 1858 to 1947) and Indian territories independent of British rule such as the Maratha Empire
Satya Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania More than thirty million famine related deaths occurred in British India between 1870 and 1910, a phenomenon Mike Davis in his recent book has called the Late Victorian Holocaust. 1 The Deccan region of central India was the worst victim of these famines. This paper will analyze the official ideology, the reasons, and consequences of these famines. On the Question of Theory: Just as the Europeans justified the Atlantic slave trade in terms of civilizing the savage, Christianizing the heathen, and making the barbarian productive through a work ethic.

The incidence of beriberi in Burma was in fact rather different from that in British India: see Judith L Richell, Disease and demography in colonial Burma, Singapore, NUS Press, 2006, ch. 6. Mortality from beriberi in the Philippines was far higher than in the Northern Circars despite similar population numbers: Williams, op. ci. note 8 above, p. 250.

The Indian famine of 1899–1900 began with the failure of the summer monsoons in 1899 over west and Central India and, during the next year, affected an area of 476,000 square miles and a population of 5. million. The famine was acute in the Central Provinces and Berar, the Bombay Presidency, the minor province of Ajmer-Merwara, and the Hissar District of the Punjab; it also caused great distress in the princely states of the Rajputana Agency, the Central India Agency, Hyderabad and the Kathiawar Agency . The Report on the Famine in the Central Provinces in 1899–1900 noted the "extreme healthiness of the first four months of the famine, September to December 1899.
1876-1878 Famine in India describes a massive famine that hit British controlled India in from about 1876 to 1878. The famine initially struck the Deccan Plateau, which makes up "the entire southern peninsula of India south of the Narmada River. This area, with an average elevation of 2000 ft (600m) above sea level, is drier than the coasts. It includes the modern Indian states of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu.
Do international trade and finance flow together? In theory, trade and finance can be substitutes or complements, so the matter must be resolved empirically. We study trade and financial flows from the United Kingdom from 1870 to 1913 and the United States in the interwar years. Trade and finance are robustly correlated, even after allowing for simultaneity. Evidence from the British Empire casts doubt on the idea that trade is a punishment device in the event of a default. 299 K). Acknowledgments.
The genesis, and even more the growth, of the international banana industry is intimately bound up with the development of steamships (from 1850 onwards) and with the spread of railway construction around the world. The coming of steam, which ensured consistent and swifter passage from the Caribbean and Central America to the United States, and later to Europe, meant that bananas could be delivered in good condition rather than rotten, as had happened in earlier days. The working paper traces developments from the earliest commercial days, probably in Panama, closely followed by Jamaica, certainly by 1870.
Anna Lombard": a passage to Indians. Surveyors establishing the Durand Line between Afghanistan and British India (1894-896) set up piles of stones as boundary markers. These boundary markers looked the same as local saints’ shrines and were frequently destroyed as false shrines by the local population. When we measure the successes of the partition plans in British India and Mandatory Palestine, partition of British India comes out as a success story. I have argued, in this paper, why I think partition in British India succeeded.
