Thomas Robert Malthus created a considerable controversy with his 1789 publication Essay on the Principle of Population. Since then there has been a great deal of confusion about the ideas attributed to him. Donald Winch here examines the contribution Malthus made to political econony, morality, and demography, and the changes his Essay underwent after its second, mature edition of 1803. He also assesses the profound influence of Malthus on Darwin and Keynes, and his significance for contemporary economic thought.
