  • A short introduction to the work of Thomas Robert Malthus, an influential English cleric
  • Clearly explains Malthus's ideas and main theories
  • Assesses the profound influence Malthus has had on modern economic thought
  • Considers the impact he had on later theorists, such as Darwin and Keynes

 
Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834) was an English cleric whose ideas, as expounded in his most famous work the Essay on the Principle of Population, caused a storm of controversy. In this Very Short Introduction, Donald Winch explains and clarifies Malthus's ideas, assessing the profound influence he has had on modern economic thought. 
 
Concentrating on his writings, Winch sheds light on the context in which he wrote and why his work has remained controversial. Looking at Malthus's early life as well as the evolution of his theories from population to political economy, Winch considers why and how Malthus's writings have been so influential in the thought of later figures such as Darwin and Keynes. 
 
 
REVIEW:
"With population growth and food availability remaining major economic and social issues today, it is little wonder that Malthus ideas continue to resonate. This accessible and thorough clarification of his ideas is therefore as timely and relevant as ever." - Nicholas J. McMeniman, Australian Commonwealth Government, Political Studies Review
