Lambert M. SurhoneISBN: 978-6-1320-0443-7;
Pacte de Famine or Famine Pact was a conspiracy theory adopted by many living in France during the 18th century. The theory held that foods, especially grain, were purposely withheld from them, for the benefit of privileged interest groups(Andress 17). During this period French citizens obtained much of their nourishment from grain. (Kaplan 1)The famine plot has roots in pre-revolutionary France, while some of its strongest manifestations were evident during the 1760s and 1770s. The collective mentality surrounding this conspiracy served as a tool for French citizens to make sense of the political environment at the time.
