Summary
"It is rarely recognised either by scholars of Australian history or of Thomas Robert Malthus that the famous political economist wrote about New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in later editions of Essay on the Principle of Population. This occasional lecture examines just what he said about Aboriginal people in 1803, at a time when native people and their land was high on many a colonial agenda. This Lecture suggests the need to analyse Malthus's Essay in the light of colonial historiography as well as economic history." [Authors abstract]
