This collection covers the breadth of Mill's work in social theory and political economy, including his ethics, liberalism, theory of government, methodology and feminism. It illustrates the development of modern Mill scholarship and the influence of changing social conditions and philosophical trends upon it. Mill is recognized as a dominating figure in the tradition of liberalism. His brand of utilitarian liberalism represents the major alternative to the rights-based liberalism of contemporary thinkers such as Rawls and Dworkin, and his social thought has been debated ever since his death in 1873. The material included here charts the vicissitudes of his reputation, especially in connection with the renaissance of Mill studies which began in the 1960s, when changing social conditions and the resultant atmosphere of moral debate led to newly urgent discussion of On Liberty and Utilitarianism.
