This book challenges thinking about the nature and causes of poverty in both the Global North and Global South. Together with a companion volume providing more detailed interdisciplinary and theoretical insights into the phenomenon of shame in relation to poverty, the book shows how the pain of poverty is emotional as well as material. Moreover, the emotional hurt differs little in kind or degree between countries as diverse as Norway and Uganda, Britain andIndia, China, South Korea and Pakistan. The shame felt as a consequence of poverty can lead to depression and suicide and prevent people from being able to help themselves. It is made worse by the wordsand behaviour of those without experience of poverty and by policies that unfairly blame, shame and stigmatise people in poverty. The volume will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students across many disciplines and to anyone who cares about their neighbours or about the wellbeing of people and societies across the globe.

The Chinese ideogram Chi is far richer in connotation than the equivalent English verb "to eat." Chi can also be read as "the mouth that begs for food and words." In China such fundamental acts as eating or refusing to eat can carry enormous symbolic weight. This book examines the twentieth-century Chinese political experience as it is represented literature through hunger, cooking, eating, and cannibalising. At the core of Gang Yue's argument lies the premise that the discourse surrounding the most universal of basic human acts-eating-is a culturally specific one. The broad historical scope of this volume illustrates how widely applicable eating-related metaphors can be. For instance, Yue shows how cannibalism symbolises old China under European colonisation in the writing of Lu Xun. In Mo Yan's 1992 novel Liquorland, however, cannibalism becomes the symbol of overindulgent consumerism. Yue considers other writers as well, such as Shen Congwen, Wang Ruowang, Lu Wenfu, Zhang Zianliang, Ah Cheng, Zheng Yi, and Liu Zhenyun. A special section devoted to women writers includes a chapter on Xiao Hong, Wang Anyi, and Li Ang, and another on the Chinese-American women writers Jade Snow Wong, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Amy Tan. The Mouth That Begs will interest sinologists, literary critics, anthropologists, cultural studies scholars, and all others curious about the semiotics of food.
