Pressestimmen"...This book brings together ten very different contributions, each of which illuminates the essay's continuing interest... while several essays would be accessible and useful to undergraduate students, the collection as a whole is aimed primarily at researchers, or at least more advanced students... for those with an adequate background, this collection forms a fine introduction to some central interpretive debates around On Liberty." --Philosophy in Review, Ben Saunders, The University of Stirling
