The work, On Liberty by John Stuart Mill, was one of the most widely read of all books on economics in the world as Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. John Mill is known as one of the founders of economics.

His views on liberty are commonly regarded as his most important contribution to political thought, and his essay On Liberty is the most widely known of his political writings. It is remarkable, therefore, that an essay by him entitled ”On Social Freedom” has been almost completely neglected. As far as can be discovered this briefer essay is not mentioned in any history of political theory or in any study of John Stuart Mill, and it appears in no bibliography of Mill’s works. This situation is the more remarkable because these few pages represent a marked advance in Mill’s thinking on the problem involved. They contain modifications of the central argument in his earlier essay and throw new light on the shift in his position from individualism toward socialism and idealism during the latter years of his life.

For those readers who need to learn Mill’s thoughts of the latter years of his life, this book, On Social Freedom in full text of 1901 Edition, is the right one for them.

This is a must-read book for people who are interested in the deepest thoughts about individualism, socialism, and idealism by John Mill, one of the greatest thinkers on the planet.
