The edition is so good in itself that, especially for the scholar, but also for the general reader, it transcends the worth of the books included in it.... A superb edition of a long-neglected and often misunderstood master.

—Population and Development Review


The flow of more specialised studies of various aspects of Malthus work continues unabated. This excellent edition can do nothing but stimulate anew such inquiries. Apart from its great scholarly value, it will be an attractive addition to any library, public, private or simply personal.
