Throughout the first half of the 19th century, British agricultural policy was governed by the Corn Law, which protected British cereal producers from cheaper import competition.

Thomas Malthus fiercely attacked the legislation as protectionist and counter-productive in a text which, as the spectre of protectionism threatens to make its way back into public policy, is once again very relevant.
