0 Reviews
This volume comprises a collection of manuscripts by or relating to T.R. Malthus, discovered in the estate of a distant nephew of Malthus. The collection consists of correspondence, sermons, essays and lecture notes on political economy and history. The manuscripts provide insights into Malthus personal life - especially his relationships with his parents and his tutors. They also give details of the books he studied as a student, and suggest hitherto unknown influences on his intellectual development. They suggest a solution to the question of who or what influenced him to omit the controversial theological chapters from later editions of his Essay on Population; and his sermons present further evidence of his religious views.

About the author (1998)

Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834) was a British scholar, influential in political economy and demography. Malthus popularized the economic theory of rent. Malthus has become widely known for his theories concerning population and its increase or decrease in response to various factors. The six editions of his An Essay on the Principle of Population, published from 1798 to 1826, observed that sooner or later population gets checked by famine and disease. He wrote in opposition to the popular view in 18th-century Europe that saw society as improving and in principle as perfectible. William Godwin and the Marquis de Condorcet, for example, believed in the possibility of almost limitless improvement of society. So, in a more complex way, did Jean-Jacques Rousseau, whose notions centered on the goodness of man and the liberty of citizens bound only by the socia1 contract - a form of popular sovereignty. Malthus thought that the dangers of population growth would preclude endless progress towards a utopian society: "The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man."] As an Anglican clergyman, Malthus saw this situation as divinely imposed to teach virtuous behavior. Malthus placed the longer-term stability of the economy above short-term expediency. He criticized the Poor Laws and (alone among important contemporary economists) supported the Corn Laws, which introduced a system of taxes on British imports of wheat. He thought these measures would encourage domestic production, and so promote long-term benefits. Malthus became hugely influential, and controversial, in economic, political, social and scientific thought. Many of those whom subsequent centuries term evolutionary biologists read him, notably Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, for each of whom Malthusianism became an intellectual stepping-stone to the idea of natural selection. Malthus remains a writer of great significance and controversy.

John Pullen has spent most of his career in media, first as a cameraman, then as a writer, director and producer of factual programmes. His worst moment came when he accidently hit Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher hard on the head with his video camera. Many of the programmes were about medical subjects and this fostered an interest in the subject and in particular, the mind. He went back to college for three years and graduated in Hypnotherapy at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and is a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis. He has also written many books over the years, both fiction and non-fiction. The latter encompasses general and professional aviation, medicine and history. A number of his novels are fantasy adventures and are aimed at "young adults and adults who are young." Currently he lives near London and for relaxation flies planes and plays tennis.
