Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0678002762, Hardcover)

Everett's treatise is important for introducing one of the two relations that are lacking in Malthusian theory between the increase of population and the increase of susbsistence. Everett argued that increase in population meant increased production of food and was therefore likely to induce improvements in methods of its production. Added to this reprint edition are "The Malthusian Theory--Discussed in a Correspondence between Alexander H. Everett and George Tucker (Democratic Review, 1845) and "The Condition of China, with Reference to the Malthusian Theory" (Democratic Review, 1847). "His main point ... was new ... and in general presented ... a useful approach to the population problem as a whole." J..A. Schumpeter History of Economic Analysis
