Malthus by Donald Winch( Book )
25 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,049 libraries worldwide
With world population today edging over seven billion, and with projections for it to reach nine billion by mid-century, the ideas of eighteenth-century English cleric Thomas Malthus-and his grim prediction that war, plague, and famine are the inevitable response to overpopulation--loom ever larger on the horizon. But if Malthus is a familiar name to most educated people, few of us have read his famous and controversial work, Essay on the Principle of Population, and indeed few have but a sketchy notion of his ideas. In this Very Short Introduction, Donald Winch explains and clarifies Malthus's thought, assessing the profound influence he has had on modern economics. Concentrating on his writings, Winch sheds light on the context in which he wrote and why his work has remained controversial. Looking at Malthus's early life as well as the evolution of his theories from population to political economy, Winch considers why and how Malthus's writings have been so influential in the thought of later figures such as Charles Darwin and John Maynard Keynes

That noble science of politics : a study in nineteenth-century intellectual history by Stefan Collini( Book )
22 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 608 libraries worldwide
"In this unusual and important work, three well-known historians of ideas examine the diverse forms taken in nineteenth-century Britain by the aspiration to develop what was then known as a 'science of politics'. This aspiration encompassed a more extensive and ambitious range of concerns than is implied by the modern term 'political science': in fact, as this book demonstrates, it remained the overarching category under which many nineteenth-century thinkers grouped their attempts to achieve systematic understanding of man's common life. As a result of both the over-concentration on closed abstract systems of thought and the intrusion of concerns which pervade much writing in the history of political theory and of the social sciences, these attempts have since been neglected or misrepresented. By deliberately avoiding such approaches, this book restores the subject to its centrality in the intellectual life and political culture of nineteenth-century Britain"--Publisher description

Principles of political economy : with some of their applications to social philosophy by John Stuart Mill( Book )
19 editions published between 1970 and 1988 in English and held by 316 libraries worldwide
"This volume unites, for the first time, Books IV and V of Mill's great treatise on political economy with his fragmentary chapters on socialism. It shows him applying his classical economic theory to policy questions of abiding concern, particularly the desirability of sustained growth of national wealth and population versus a stationary state, the merits of capitalism versus socialism, and the expedient scope of government intervention in the competitive market economy. His answers to these questions have considerable relevance today, and they serve to illustrate the enduring power and imagination of his distinctive liberal utilitarian philosophy." "In his Introduction Jonathan Riley clarifies Mill's approach, considers what constitutes the Millian Utopia, and shows how examination of such an ideal society provides valuable insights into the structure of his philosophy."--Jacket
Vindiciae Gallicae and other writings on the French Revolution by James Mackintosh( Book )

"Vindiciae Gallicae and Other Writings on the French Revolution presents the first modern and fully annotated edition of James Mackintosh's most famous work, Vindiciae Gallicae, together with related writings on the French Revolution. The writings span the years 1791 to 1815 and trace the transformation of Mackintosh's thinking on the Revolution, beginning with his enthusiastic support of the cause, his later disillusionment with its violence and tyranny, and finally an increasing desire to distance himself from his earlier advocacy."--Jacket
