"It is one of the many costs of the South African war that it has cut off from England any effectual knowledge of the fact that at least one quarter of the inhabitants of the British Empire have during the past year been exposed to the direst famine on record. Now that Mr. Vaughan Nash has published these articles in a volume, with photographs, a map and statistical appendices, it is possible to estimate at its true value the very useful contribution that he has made to our knowledge of India." - Introductory paragraph.
