An essay on the principle of population : text, sources and background, criticism by T. R Malthus( Book )

"While millions face hunger, malnutrition, and starvation, the world's population is increasing by over 225,000 people per day, 80 million per year. In many countries, supplies of food and water are inadequate to support this many people, so the world falls deeper and deeper into what economists call the "Malthusian trap," named for the writer whose work, more than any other, brought attention to the population dilemma. Thomas Robert Malthus first published An Essay on the Principle of Population in 1798, and it quickly became the focal point of controversies which continue today. Simply put, it stated that human population increased at a geometric rate, while agricultural production could, at best, increase only arithmetically, thus resulting in shortages of food. While this idea was neither entirely new nor wholly indisputable, Malthus' clear and forceful statement sounded an alarm. Today, many nations and individuals are making efforts to curb runaway population growth, but for much of the world, the problem remains unsolved." "This new edition of the classic work contains the text of the original 1798 essay, along with later revisions made by the author. Background and source materials include excerpts from works by such writers as David Hume, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx. Contemporary commentary ranges widely through many schools of thought, from Lester R. Brown, Paul and Anne Ehrlich, and Garret Hardin to Julian Simon and Pope Paul VI. The evolution of Malthus' idea and its validity through the years are traced in Philip Appleman's comprehensive introduction."--BOOK JACKET
