On Liberty, John Stuart Mill's classic critique of the ethical limits of governmental authority, remains one of the most influential philosophical treatises ever written. This interactive edition, in our popular Bold-Facedseries, prompts readers to reflect on the importance of free will, free speech, and dissent in a democratic society. It features an informative introduction by series editor Laura Ross along with highlighted passages, writing exercises, and lined pages for notes. Mills's thoughtful analysis addresses many of today's most pressing and contentious political issues.
