On Liberty; Representative Government; The Subjection Of Women: 3 Essays (The World's Classics)

£9.99

Product description

These three essays of John Stuart Mill (1806-73) were written in the latter half of his life, are still relevant in our own day, when liberty and representative government are in rivalry with other principles, and when women, and when women, though legally equal with men, have yet to gain unprejudiced general acceptance of their equality. Mill's clear discussion of the basic human rights and requirements behind these principles is of lasting value.

A 1971 reprint published in The World's Classics series by Oxford University Press, this volume features an introduction by Millicent Garret Fawcett. The book is complete with its dustjacket which shows some wear and tear. it is rubbed and faded, with small tears on the back cover and spine. The blue-cloth boards are slightly spotted. The text block is in a good condition.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
