No book in the history of British economic thought has caused a more heated and lasting controversy than Thomas Malthus' An Essay on the Principle of Population . So provocative was it deemed upon publication in 1798, that Malthus dramatically altered its tone for the second edition of 1803. The impact of his original ideas was, however, still so strong that it began a controversy that continued to rage for the next thirty years and beyond. Critics queried and analysed the facts, refuted his system of ratios, and attacked the conclusions he reached. This set contains the wide breadth of responses that met Malthus' work, focusing on several aspects of the debate: from the claim that Malthus was exagerratedly gloomy and pessimistic, to the accusation that his theory denied the goodness of God. Many disbelieved that overpopulation was or would be a problem, and baulked at the possibility that Malthus was advocating contraception. Many books and pamphlets were published in response to the Malthusian stance on population - this set brings together some of the most notable and lively contributors to the debate.
