The Basic Writings of John Stuart Mill: On Liberty, the Subjection of Women and Utilitarianism

by

The Basic Writings of John Stuart Mill: On Liberty, the Subjection of Women and Utilitarianism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The writings of John Stuart Mill have become the cornerstone of political liberalism. Collected for the first time in this volume are Mill’s three seminal and most widely read works: On Liberty, The Subjection of Women, and Utilitarianism. A brilliant defense of individual rights versus the power of the state, On Liberty is essential reading for anyone interested in political thought and theory. As Bertrand Russell reflected, “On Liberty remains a classic . . . the present world would be better than it is, if [Mill’s] principles were more respected.”

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition includes newly commissioned endnotes and commentary by Dale E. Miller, and an index.
