Description
Information
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.
