Hunger in China: the norm of truth

Hunger in China: the norm of truth

Worldview 22(3): 12-16

It is argued that food consumption in many areas is still close to or below subsistence levels. Many examples from the Chinese press are cited. Grain production per caput has not increased between 1955 and 1977. There were many disaster areas in 1978, due to bad harvests. A warning is given for optimistic interpretations of the euphemistic language in the Chinese press. Major problems in the geographical distribution of food are discussed. Cities are fairly well off; remote areas often badly.
