The book is a revised and much expanded edition of Malthus's earlier work, and has been called "really, another work". According to Malthus, because of an ever increasing population rate, man will come up against a ceiling created by the fact that the world's resources needed for life are limited. The essence of Malthus's doctrine is that the population level cannot keep on increasing without, at some point, pressing on the limits of the means of substance, and that a check of some kind or the other must, sooner or later, be imposed to it. The book remains a compelling treatise on population and is a must- read for the students, teachers and researchers on the subject.
