An Essay on the Principle of Population was first published anonymously in 1798 by Joseph Johnson. The author was soon identified as The Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus.

While it was not the first book on population, it has been acknowledged as the most influential work of its era. Its 6th Edition was independently cited as a key influence by both Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in developing the theory of natural selection.

A key portion of the book was dedicated to what is now known as Malthus' Iron Law of Population – this name itself is retrospective, based on the iron law of wages, which is the reformulation of Malthus' position by Ferdinand Lassalle, who in turn derived the name from Goethe's "great, eternal iron laws" in Das Göttliche. This theory suggested that growing population rates would contribute to a rising supply of labour that would inevitably lower wages. In essence, Malthus feared that continued population growth would lend itself to poverty.

Trudno mówić o problemach globalnego świata beż przywoływania Prawa ludności Roberta Thomasa Malthusa (1766-­1834), autora, który dał podwaliny dla teorii przeludnienia, pierwszy wskazała na niebezpieczeństwa niekontrolowanej reprodukcji ludzkiego gatunku. Co ciekawego jednak, nazwisko Malthusa pojawia się zwykle w biografii lub przypisach, jego esej o prawie ludności od lat nie był wznawiany, znany jest właściwie niemal wyłącznie naukowcom i niektórym ekonomistom.
Wielkim dorobkiem Malthusa jest zwrócenie uwagi następnych pokoleń badaczy na palące problemy związane z wyżywieniem rosnącej populacji ludzkiej, problemy wciąż aktualne w Afryce i Azji, a więc kontynentach, które mają najwyższy współczynnik wzrostu demograficznego. Zapoczątkował badania nad demografią, analizowaniem jej trendów, wreszcie powiązaniem demografii z ekonomią i problemami środowiska naturalnego.
