'John Stuart Mill's essay, On Liberty, was published in 1859. With the exception of the Communist Manifesto, it is doubtful that any work in the nineteenth or twentieth century political thought has excited as much attention, given rise to a vast and controversial a body of literature, or had as profound an impact as has Mill's little volume, now available in a Norton Critical Edition, which includes the text, carefully annotated by David Spitz, and representative selections from Mill's supporters, as well as his critics.'
