Malthus' Essay on the Principles of Populationwas one of the most controversial books ever published. Going through six editions in the author's lifetime, it cast a long shadow down the nineteenth century, with nearly all of the century's leading thinkers - from Hazlitt and Ricardo to Marx and Darwin - feeling compelled to comment on it.
