John Stuart Mill: Political Economist is a revised version of the part of Samuel Hollander's The Economics of John Stuart Mill (1985) treating the theory of economic policy. In this book, Professor Hollander offers a critical yet sympathetic analysis of Mill's quest to accomplish thorough reform of capitalism in the interest of distributive justice while protecting the security of property and contemplating the potential evolution of capitalism into cooperative organization. Part I of the book serves as an introduction to the investigation of Mill's theory of economic policy; Parts II and III include Mill's primary policy recommendations; while Part IV adds a substantial "Overview and Evaluation" reviewing the author's main conclusions. A major concern is Mill's perception of the composition of the "greatest number" whose interests are to be considered by policy-makers; here arises his attitude towards British Imperialism. The author then undertakes thematic comparisons between the positions of Mill and those of Smith, Ricardo, Malthus, Marx and Bernstein; and closes with a rejection of the celebrated criticism of Mill's "liberalism" by Friedrich Hayek.

Incorporating the latest scholarship as well as his own considered views of Mill, Hollander has produced another major contribution to the history of classical economics. His characteristic method of careful and thorough textual exegesis supports a nuanced and fair assessment of Mill's normative thinking in light of multiple interpretive challenges. As such this is a most welcome and important contribution to the perennially fascinating study of J S Mill.” Professor Jeffrey T Young St. Lawrence University, New York “Samuel Hollander is one of the most knowledgeable scholars of classical economics in the world today. In this volume he revisits John Stuart Mill's political economy, offering a newly reintegrated approach to Mill's broad agenda of economic and social reform. With a masterful appreciation of Mill's theoretical and philosophical roots, Hollander draws a compelling picture of a Mill too honest to soften his critique of the British economy of his day even as he maintained his commitment to liberty and faith in competition. Hollander caries his theme across a range of practical policy questions and even to the problem of imperialism, where Mill has not infrequently been accused of hypocrisy. The volume ends with two fine chapters that only Hollander could write, the first on Mill's relation to the classical economists from Smith through Marx, and the second a most telling critique of Hayek's ambivalent relation with Mill. This is a book not only for scholars, but also for politicians, advisors and citizens interested in what it means to make policy out of economics.” Professor Joseph Persky University of Illinois at Chicago “This wonderful book is vintage Hollander - immensely learned, deeply insightful, and eminently readable.” Professor Andrew Farrant Dickinson College, Pennsylvania “No one has done so much as Samuel Hollander to enhance our understanding and deepen our appreciation of the richness and enduring relevance of J S Mill's economic thought. Professor Hollander, a towering presence among those engaged in studying the history and legacy of classical political economy, here revisits the character and significance of Mill's position on fundamental issues of economic policy. He does so in light of the large store of important commentary on Mill accrued since the publication thirty years ago of Professor Hollander's monumental The Economics of John Stuart Mill. This material he treats with an exemplary courtesy and fair-mindedness. To his reconsideration of Mill's policy analyses and prescriptions Professor Hollander brings a tireless and penetrating intellect that executes a formidably thorough inquiry into all aspects of Millian economic thought in its bearing on problems of policy. Informed throughout by a massive learning and profound scholarship, John Stuart Mill: Political Economist will be welcomed as the crowning achievement of Professor Hollander's decades-long encounter with the economic thought of J S Mill.” Professor Bruce Kinzer Kenyon College, Ohio “This compelling, exhaustive account guides us through Mill's collected writings as well as an extensive secondary literature in providing a brief but penetrating guide to the policy-oriented elements of Mill's economic ideas. Hollander aims to restore Mill's "Principles" to the center of our interpretation of his oeuvre, and to reposition Mill in light of the other leading contributors to political economy of his epoch. The best available introduction to the subject, this book will be welcomed by readers across the humanities and social sciences.” Professor Greg Claeys University of London “Three decades ago, as a grad' student, I read Samuel Hollander's magisterial two volume study of J S Mill as an economist. As I am not an academic economist I was especially drawn to the second volume which I thought then was one of the best and most insightful accounts of Mill's political and moral theory. The publication of a significantly revised version of that text is therefore something for the scholarly community to welcome. But this is no mere reissue, Hollander has up-dated and restructured his argument to present the substance as a significant new book in its own right. We see that Hollander's insights and incisive scholarly judgments are merely not diminished but are enhanced by his mastery of the detail and the scholarship. He remains one of the giants of Mill studies alongside his own hero John Robson. This book is insightful, authoritative and important. Jaded scholars of J S Mill will be refreshed by this book and all serious students of Mill and of nineteenth and twentieth century British history and political, social and economic thought should relish this book. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” Professor Paul Kelly London School of Economics and Political Science

In the last twenty years one of the classical arenas for British historical writing - the politics of Victorian Britain - has ceased to be an obvious or self-evidently important subject. Facing up to this challenge, the historians who have contributed to this volume explore central aspects of that history. They continue to uphold the centrality of politics to Victorian Britain, but suggest that politics must be viewed more broadly, as a concern pervading almost all spheres of life, just as Victorians themselves would have done. In this way politics penetrates into Victorian culture. 'Politics' can lead us into the ideas governing political action itself; political ideas; international relations; the eduction of men and women; the writing of history and of literature; engagement with past political theorists; and the ideas behind professionalization. Such are some of the themes taken up here. The specific occasion for these essays was as a tribute to the memory of the late Colin Matthew, one of the most eminent recent historians of Victorian Britain, who was himself determined to uphold the contemporary relevance of Victorian political tradition, and to explore the interface between 'politics' and 'culture'. Reflection on his intellectual achievement is a second distinctive component of this book.

A work that can truly be described as an underground masterpiece, Sears' Philanthropy in the History of American Higher Education was written as a dissertation seventy years ago, and subsequently published as a "Bulletin" by the United States Bureau of Education in 1922. It has been much spoken of and little read since then. As Roger L. Geiger points out in his new opening essay, this volume can still be read with wide interest and great profit. This is a tribute to the quality of mind and diligence of its author. The special quality of this volume is its close connection of educational philosophies of the past linked firmly to the educational philanthropies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The scope of coverage is broad-ranging: from the great universities to the manual labor colleges. But it is more than quantitative research that the reader will find. For Sears, from start to finish, while appreciating the benefits which foundations bestow, fully appreciated the continuing risks of such outside support. For Sears, the overwhelming impulse of philanthropy has been the encouragement of the public good, or at least the support of a healthy notoriety for the donors and recipients alike. But he also notes that a democratic society must never be expected to take massive gifts on faith. He urged that even a "grain of danger" should be weeded out if it carries with it the potential for the bias and special interest. This edition is graced by a fine essay that gives a deep background to the life and work of Jesse Brundage Sears. It covers his origins in rural Missouri, his move to Stanford University and work for Ellwood P. Cubberly, and his later work on the history of philanthropy. For individuals interested in the history of education, the structure of financing higher education, and the data on which social policy has been made, this will be indispensable reading. Roger L. Geiger, author of the recently published work, To Advance Knowledge: The Growth of American Research Universities, 1900-1940 and other works in education at The Pennsylvania State University. This volume is the twelfth volume in the Transaction Studies in Philanthropy and Society edited by Richard Magat of The Foundation Center.
