With population growth and food availability remaining major economic and social issues today, it is little wonder that Malthus ideas continue to resonate. This accessible and thorough clarification of his ideas is therefore as timely and relevant as ever. - Nicholas J. McMeniman, Australian Commonwealth Government, Political Studies Review
