Anotace

This is the provocative historical work on social economy, demography and population control. Malthus' life's work on human population and its dependency on food production and the environment was highly controversial on publication in 1798. He predicted what is known as the Malthusian catastrophe, in which humans would disregard the limits of natural resources and the world would be plagued by famine and disease. He significantly influenced the thinking of Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace and his theories continue to raise important questions today in the fields of social theory, economics and the environment. It comes with an introduction by Robert Mayhew. After graduating from Cambridge, Thomas Malthus settled in Hertfordshire as a lecturer in history and political economy at the East India Company College. Among his many works, An Essay on the Principle of Population was the most successful and most outrageous. He boldly opposed popular Enlightenment ideals of the 18th-century. Robert Mayhew is Professor of Historical Geography and Intellectual History at Bristol University. In 2014 he published Malthus: The Life and Legacies of an Untimely Prophet.
