Entre pénurie et famine, étude de cas de la famine de 1089-1092 à Hangzhou et au Zhexi

Abstract : This study is about two famines of the Zhexi region (actual Zhejiang), the first one, the best documented of the two, the "Yuanyou famine" happened between 1089 and 1092 ; and the second one, the "Xining famine" happened between 1073 and 1075. This study main objective is to compare the two famine in order to determine which politics were regarded as good politics (shangce上策) and which ones were regarded as bad ones (xiace 下策) in eleventh century Sung China, where famine treaties have yet to be written. This study is also focused on better understanding the close border between a state of famine and a state of scarcity and furthermore aims to comprehend the still under-developped mecanisms of famine administration in eleventh century China and its failings, which are also the failings of an economical and financial state system shaken by the reforms which took place starting from 1069.
