Product description

This expanded edition of John Stuart Mill's Utilitarianism includes the text of his 1868 speech to the British House of Commons defending the use of capital punishment in cases of aggravated murder. The speech is significant both because its topic remains timely and because its arguments illustrate the applicability of the principle of utility to questions of large-scale social policy.

Review quote

Adding the selections from the Speech on Capital Punishment is an excellent idea. --Mark Migotti, University of Calgary
