This is a fascinating insight into thework of one of our greatest thinkers.Thomas Robert Malthus (1766' 1834) is best remembered today for his theories on the menace of over-population; this first ever full-length biography shows him also in his role as one of the founders of classical political economy, still a controversial figure in the history of economic thought.

An essay on the principle of population, or, A view of its past and present effects on human happiness : with an inquiry into our prospects respecting the future removal or mitigation of the evils which it occasions by T. R Malthus( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Essay on the Principal of Population, which I published in 1798, was suggested, as is expressed in the preface, by a paper in Mr. Godwin's Inquirer. It was written on the impulse of the occasion, and from the few materials which were then within my reach in a country situation. The only authors from whose writings I had deduced the principle, which formed the main argument of the Essay, were Hume, Wallace, Adam Smith, and Dr. Price; and my object was to apply it, to try the truth of those speculations on the perfectibility of man and society, which at that time excited a considerable portion of the public attention. In the course of the discussion I was naturally led into some examination of the effects of this principle on the existing state of society. It appeared to account for much of that poverty and misery observable among the lower classes of people in every nation, and for those reiterated failures in the efforts of the higher classes to relieve them. The more I considered the subject in this point of view, the more importance it seemed to acquire; and this consideration, joined to the degree of public attention which the Essay excited, determined me to turn my leisure reading towards an historical examination of the effects of the principle of population on the past and present state of society; that, by illustrating the subject more generally, and drawing those inferences from it, in application to the actual state of things, which experience seemed to warrant, I might give it a more practical and permanent interest"--Preface.

First published anonymously in 1798, the essay was one of the most influential works on population in its era. One of the work's central theses held that a growing population would inevitably cause a rising supply of labor, which would cause wages to fall. Unchecked population growth would therefore lead to widespread poverty. Much debate about the work's conclusions and identity of its author followed its initial publication. By 1803, Malthus—now firmly established as the author—published a second edition. He continued to revise the work through a total of six editions. One of the lasting contributions of the work was the establishment of a national census in England, Wales and Scotland, held every 10 years beginning in 1801
