Catalogue Note

"'Mill on Liberty' remains [Mill's] most widely read book. It represents the final stage in the growth of Utilitarian doctrine, and its central point is one which had escaped both Mill's father and Bentham. Mill realized that the 'greatest good' of the community is inseparable from the liberty of the individual." (Carter and Muir, Printing and the Mind of Man)
