Considerations on Representative Government (Great Books in Philosophy)by John Stuart Mill
Synopses & Reviews
In this powerful work, John Stuart Mill sets forth representative government as the most sensible compromise between unreflective rule by the masses and the self-indulgence of the few. The reader of this volume senses that Mill is being pulled in opposing directions: steadfastly committed to majority rule with minority rights while at the same time being just enough of an aristocrat to believe that the masses need examplars to emulate.
On Representative Government is one of the most compelling political essays of the 19th century.
