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. Based on exhaustive research among contemporary sources, it gives an account of Malthus' s two careers, as an economist and as a professor at the East India

An essay on the principle of population, or, A view of its past and present effects on human happiness by T. R Malthus( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 10 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.

Reiseskildring. Thomas Robert Malthus skildrer i denne boken en reise fra Svinesund, via Halden og Moss til Oslo. Videre til Kongsberg, Romerike, gjennom Gudbrandsdalen, over Dovre og til Trondheim. På tilbaketuren dro han innom Røros, gjennom Østerdalen og ned til Kongsvinger.
